In the time it takes to read this sentence, three more Americans will need blood.
Each day, 32,000 units of blood are used in the United States. There is no substitute for human blood—it cannot be manufactured, so hospitals rely, mainly, on the generous donations from volunteer donors.
A single whole blood donation provides enough components (red blood cells, platelets, and plasma) to save three lives. For just an hour of your time you, too, can donate these life-saving components to patients in need.
Located in Grand Forks, North Dakota, the Dak-Minn Blood Bank is the provider of blood and blood products for Altru Hospital. When you donate blood at the Dak-Minn Blood Bank, you are helping to save the lives of people in the Greater Grand Forks community.
Please do more than think about it. Schedule an appointment, donate blood today.
