There is currently a CRITICAL NEED FOR BLOOD; hospital demand for blood products has outpaced blood donations much of this year. Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. One in seven people entering the hospital will need a blood transfusion. Less than 5% of the population eligible to give blood do so. Help Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, Psi Eta Omega Chapter, tackle the need by giving blood.
We work together every day to do important work. But today, we want to accomplish something even more meaningful. The Red Cross has to collect 15,000 blood donations every day to have enough blood to help patients in 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. That’s a lot of patients in need and all of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive life saving blood.
So SleevesUp and help us reach our goal. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.
