Donating Blood Makes an Impact
When you give blood with Vitalant, you have the potential to help hospital patients within your community and, when the need arises, others across the country.
When extreme weather and unforeseen tragedies occur, Vitalant’s experienced nationwide team members jump into action to quickly deliver blood where it’s needed most. The benefits of our larger footprint are vast, including leveraging the coast-to-coast network of donation centers so every donation has the potential to impact more lives.
Many people believe that most blood is needed after major disasters. However, daily personal emergencies and ongoing medical needs of thousands of patients require a constant and ready blood supply. It’s the blood already on hospital shelves that saves lives.
Every day in the U.S., patients in hospitals, surgical centers and emergency treatment facilities need approximately:
36,000 units of red blood cells
7,000 units of platelets
10,000 units of plasma
