Blood provides nutrients to every single cell in our body. It is essential to replenishing oxygen, removing waste materials, healing wounds, and fighting infections. The blood flowing through our arteries and veins is an important life-sustaining force that benefits all our organs.
Every three seconds, there is a person in need of blood. It just takes one pint of blood to save up to three lives. Giving blood is rewarding. It benefits every person involved. Either your life is enriched by volunteering or someone's life is saved by your donation.
