Blood Drives – Michigan
Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of the summer season and sun-filled, carefree days ahead. The true meaning of the holiday is to honor members of the United States Armed Forces who gave the ultimate sacrifice while protecting and defending our country’s freedoms. We can honor these brave service men and women by making and keeping an appointment to donate blood through the American Red Cross.

“Your blood donation at this time of year works as both a tribute and a testament to our nation’s armed forces,” said Todd Kulman, Communications Manager for the Great Lakes Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. “By rolling up your sleeve, you’ll also help maintain a strong blood supply at a time of year when blood donations traditionally decline.”

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. While that need is constant, the number of people donating blood can fluctuate, particularly over the summer. Someone seriously injured in an automobile accident, for instance, may need up to 40 units of blood for their emergency care. It’s the blood already on the shelf that saves lives, so it’s very important that donors give blood throughout the year.

“We hope citizens recognize the ongoing need and will mark the Memorial Day holiday by donating blood,” said Kulman. “Your donation will honor those who sacrificed for our country, as well as help ensure a stable blood supply for those in need.”

About the American Red Cross
The Great Lakes Blood Services Region serves 65 counties, and needs to collect about 650 units of blood a day to meet patient need in hospitals. In addition to supplying about 40 percent of the nation’s blood, the American Red Cross teaches lifesaving skills, provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization—not a government agency—and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
