Blood is needed by someone every two seconds in the United States. Volunteer donors are the only source of life-saving blood.
The need for blood is constant. The Red Cross needs about 1,200 people to donate blood each weekday to meet the needs of hospital patients in an estimated 130 hospitals and healthcare facilities across the Southern Region.
Anyone age 17 years or older, who weighs at least 110 pounds and who is generally in good health, is eligible to donate.
A person can safely donate blood every 56 days.
To schedule an appointment, donors should call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (448-3543) or visit www.redcrossblood.org
