Blood Donors to Receive Free Cardinals T-Shirt

Local donors will be converging at the First Baptist Church on Tuesday, July 10th in hopes of reaching the goal of 100 units of blood.

Unfortunately, that is only a drop in the bucket. According to the American Red Cross, someone, somewhere in the United States, needs blood every two seconds.

Blood is needed for emergencies and for people who have cancer, blood disorders, sickle cell, anemia and other illnesses. Some people need regular blood transfusions to live.

Accidents are the most unpredictable factor for blood needs. The average accident victim uses four units of blood, but that number can go as high as 100 units depending on the severity.

But blood is also used regularly in cancer treatments and numerous surgeries, with patients commonly receiving anywhere from two to 10 units of blood.

Thats why the Red Cross is back in Memphis each month, collecting those 100 pints of blood.

It is estimated that less than five percent of the eligible population donates blood annually.

Imagine if giving blood was part of everyones life. Something you did on a regular basis, like eating at your favorite restaurant. What kind of difference would that make? For nearly 5 million people who receive blood transfusions every year, your donation can make the difference between life and death.

The local drive will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday. Donors will be receiving a free St. Louis Cardinals T-shirt. As part of the St. Louis Cardinals Step Up To The Plate and Donate campaign.

With almost 700 highly-trained staff, the American Red Cross Missouri-Illinois Blood Services Region schedules about 30 community blood drives every day and operates several, convenient blood donation centers, serving 120 hospitals in 122 counties.
