A lot has changed over the years, but one thing has remained consistent - the generous spirit of American Red Cross volunteer blood donors.
The Red Cross began supporting the blood needs of our country following World War II. Back then, blood was drawn into glass bottles. While this and many other things have changed about the way we collect blood today, one thing has not changed, and that is the willingness of volunteer blood donors to roll up their sleeves and help others.
Each year, more than 3 million volunteer blood donors, like you, help achieve our lifesaving mission. Without your help, patients undergoing surgery, an organ transplant procedure or treatment for cancer would not receive the care they need.
During January, National Volunteer Blood Donor Month, we honor you and all generous individuals who are willing to give from the heart.
Did you know?
Blood is often in short supply this time of year. Winter weather, as well as the holidays, can impact collections to the point of putting patients at risk.
Resolve to give something that means something. Schedule your blood donation appointment today.
