According to the American Red Cross, each two seconds that passes by someone in the United States is depending on a lifesaving blood donation. However, it has been found that less than 38% of people in the U.S. meets the requirements to donate their blood. At our upcoming blood drive we are aiming to help thousands of people in need. The American Red Cross notes that even 1 donation can save up to 3 lives.
