Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood.
But it cannot be manufactured; it needs to given by volunteer donors.
Are you interested in giving a small part of yourself to help save a life?
The donation process is easy:
- Registration: It is important to make an appointment to donate blood. When a donor arrives at a blood drive, he/she is asked to sign in and show identification. A driver’s license or Red Cross donor card are acceptable forms of identification. The donor will be provided with some information to read about blood donation.
- Health History: The donor will receive a mini-physical that includes vital signs and blood iron level checks. Then, the donor completes a health questionnaire to determine his/her eligibility and ensure blood safety.
- Donation: Staff cleanses an area on the donor’s inner arm, and insert a needle to draw blood. After about a five – seven minutes, about one pint will be collected and the donor’s arm will be bandaged.
- Refreshments: The donor can relax with juice and snacks after giving blood. The entire process takes only about an hour.
Giving blood is safe, easy and less painful than one might imagine. Donors often feel a fulfilling sense of contribution and pride knowing they are part of a life-saving team.
