Blood Donation Drive 2024 in Augusta, GA

Blood donation is crucial, as someone needs blood every two seconds worldwide. Patients undergoing surgery, cancer treatment, or trauma frequently require transfusions, and a single car accident victim might need up to 100 pints of blood. Blood banks often face chronic shortages, worsened by crises like natural disasters and pandemics. Regular blood donations save lives and foster a sense of community spirit and collective responsibility.

BAPS Charities heeded this call to action and organized a blood drive in Augusta, GA, on June 16, 2024. In total, 31 pints of blood were collected, potentially saving up to 93 lives.

BAPS Charities’ commitment to supporting the health and wellness of the broader community extends beyond the blood donation drive. In addition, BAPS Charities conducts comprehensive annual health fairs at over 55 centers across North America as well as vaccination drives, children’s health and safety days, and health lectures to inform and support the health and well-being of communities across the country.
