About every two seconds, a patient in the US needs blood.  To be prepared to respond to patient needs and emergencies on a daily basis, the American Red Cross relies on the generosity and dedication of its blood donors.

With blood drives scheduled nearly every day, the opportunities for eligible donors to help save lives are plentiful.  Only through their regular support can the Red Cross ensure all patients have the blood they need, no matter when or where.

Like the emergency room of a hospital, the American Red Cross must be prepared to respond to patient emergencies with blood products 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year.  Through the dedication of blood donors, the Red Cross can be prepared day in and out, no matter when or where blood is needed.

Readily available blood helps save the lives of people like David Zien, who was on his way home on this motorcycle when the SUV in front of him lost control during a lane change and flipped onto its side, sending Zien nearly 350 feet.  He was transported by helicopter to a hospital, where he received 32 pints of blood.  Today, Zien says he attributes much of his survival to the generosity of blood donors.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities:

February 10 from 12-4:15pm, First Baptist Church, 16220 Highway 75, Plattsmouth
