The American Red Cross Is In Need Of Blood Donations once again, and the Grace Lutheran Church Blood Drive On Monday, January 16th., is an excellent opportunity to help alleviate the present shortage. 

If you are not near the Grace Lutheran Church in Middletown, CT on Monday, January 16th., and want to help by donating blood, you can follow this link on the American Red Cross website to find a location near you.

According to the American Red Cross O-Positive blood is always the most in demand, because 45% of the people in the United States have either O-Positive or O-Negative blood.  Donors with type "O" blood are universal donors, their blood can be given to people of all blood types.

Here are some facts that I did not know about the American Red Cross and donating blood:

  • The American Red Cross supplies approximately 40% of the nation's blood supply.
  • The American Red Cross blood program started in 1940.
  • Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood.
  • More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day.
  • If you started donating blood when you were 17 years old, and donated blood every 56 day until you reached age 76, you will have donated 48 gallons of blood, and have potentially helped to save more than 1,000 lives.

For more facts about the American Red Cross and donating blood visit their website.  You will also find on their website contact information for where there are blood drives in your area, as well as phone numbers to contact an American Red Cross representative directly.  The American Red Cross Is In Need Of Blood Donations, and the Grace Lutheran Church Blood Drive On Monday, January 16th., is an excellent to help elevate that need.  So please consider donating blood, and help save a life.

An excellent way to help someone you do not even know. I recently had surgery on my gums and they used donor tissue and it saved my teeth.

Have a great Saturday George.

My brother in law has one of those always in demand blood type and the Red Cross calls him. I no longer give because of the meds I'm on.
