THE NEED FOR BLOOD
Every day, there are people who count on blood to be available to help save lives. Accident victims, premature babies, people undergoing cancer treatment, organ recipients, and many others rely on the generosity of blood donors to ensure that blood is available when it's needed.
In order to assure that blood is available when someone needs it, healthy people are asked to donate blood regularly throughout the year. By donating blood at a Civil War Blood Drive you help ensure a constant and adequate blood supply for all those who may be in need. Your donation could help give a friend, a neighbor, or a member of your community another chance at life.
Every blood type is needed all the time. Common blood types are needed by the many patients who can use those types, while rare blood types are often in short supply. Donations are usually in short supply during the winter holiday season, with the Civil War blood drive being the largest contributor to a well-stocked community blood supply. Civil War blood donors help ensure that organizations like American Red Cross Blood Services and Lane Blood Center can continue to help save lives.
