Give Blood - The Gift of Life

Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. That's a lot of blood.

But only 5% of the eligible US population donates blood in any given year. Healthy donors are the only source of blood.

We all expect blood to be there for us, but barely a fraction of those who can give do. Yet sooner or later, virtually all of us will face a time of great vulnerability in which we will need blood. And that time is all too often unexpected. From its beginning, the American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The honor, spirit and resources of the American people come forth with neighbors helping neighbors in need - during earthquakes, floods, fires, storms - and also for the deeply personal and often quiet disasters that require a gift of blood.

To find the nearest blood donor location, call or visit The American Red Cross Donor Center at 25 Tibet Avenue, Savannah, 31416, 912-961-5758.
