Mobilizing to save lives: BAPS Charities Blood Drive in Los Angeles, CA

BAPS Charities held a Blood Drive in Los Angeles, CA, on February 18, 2024, coordinating efforts with LifeStream. Over 30 participants took part in the event, donating 30 pints of blood, which can help save as many as 80 lives.

According to the American Red Cross, someone in the US needs blood every two seconds, and more than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day. Considering these statistics, medical facilities struggle to maintain the required blood supply on hand to treat everything from emergencies to long-term cancer treatment. While there are many who regularly donate blood, reaching out to many other viable donors is necessary to fulfill this critical quota. To help meet this need and continue its decades-long support in this area, BAPS Charities organizes regular blood donation drives across the nation to collect blood and raise awareness in the community.
