Red Cross Seeks to Boost Blood Supply, Donor Population

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. Depending on how quick a reader you are, in the time it took you to read that sentence, at least one more person was in need of the Red Cross.

Local donors will be giving the gift of life in Memphis on Tuesday, October 9th at the First Baptist Church.

High school students will open the drive from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. before the doors open to the public from 1:30-6:00 p.m.

All presenting donors will receive a scratch code-card to redeem online for a prize.

The American Red Cross reminds eligible donors that the need for blood is constant and the blood supply must be regularly replenished. By making an appointment to donate blood, dedicated donors can help the Red Cross meet the needs of patients - locally and across the nation.

More than 44,000 blood donations are needed every day, with one out of every 10 people admitted to the hospital needing blood.

Unfortunately, only 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate. And just 8 percent of those eligible, or 3 percent of the U.S. population, actually donate blood.

Those looking for another way to increase the lifesaving impact of blood donation can become an advocate by encouraging friends and family to become dedicated blood donors, too. One of the top reasons people say they haven't given blood is because no one asked them to.

Help the Red Cross increase the number of blood donors and maintain a stable blood supply for patients in need by making an appointment to donate and encouraging others to give. The organization supplies roughly 40% of the nation's blood supply.
