Blood Donation Drive 2018 in Atlanta, GA
The American Red Cross estimates that approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day to serve medical needs across the United States, but the current blood supply is well short of that demand. In support of fulfilling this need, BAPS Charities held its annual blood donation drive in Atlanta, GA on April 29, 2018. In total, 93 pints of blood were collected, which has the potential to save up to 279 lives.
Building on years of experience in conducting large-scale comprehensive Health Fairs and Blood Donation Drives, BAPS Charities’ volunteers organized the effort in conjunction with partnering local medical organizations. Blood donation guidelines and statistics were provided to potential donors to increase awareness of the critical need for various forms of blood components and its impact.
