According to statistics every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. That’s more than 41,000 blood donations needed every day. The only source of blood is volunteer blood donations. If every eligible donor donated at least twice a year, there wouldn’t be seasonal blood shortages. Tomorrow from 7:00AM until 5:00PM, the RMC Anniston Blood Bank is hosting a LifeSouth Blood Drive. Garrett says it only takes 30 minutes to donate blood. As long as you are healthy, weigh at least 110 pounds and are 17 years or older, you can give blood every 56 days. He adds each donation can save up to three lives.
