Fact: 1 in 7 patients entering a hospital will use blood. Band Together. Give Blood.
Blood transfusions are the most frequent procedure performed in hospitals with more than 33,000 daily donations required to meet patient needs in the U.S. To ensure blood is available when needed, communities worldwide rely on the commitment of altruistic blood donors who empower blood centers to continue serving their communities through the availability of a safe and robust blood supply.
How you can help
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is asking all of our blood donors to band together in 2021. Whatever is going on in the world, be it hurricanes, political turmoil, or a global pandemic, blood donors are united in our mission to save lives. Alone, we make an impact, but together we’ve proven to be an unstoppable force.
The next time our phlebotomists wrap your elbow after a blood donation, flex that arm with pride, and if you see a fellow donor with that band around their arm, be sure and give them a high five. You share a bond that changes lives in our community forever.
Thank you for being the hero we need, and we can’t wait to see you next.
