Did you know that every two seconds, someone needs blood; every minute, patients use more than 36 units of blood or blood products; and every day, approximately 40,000 units of blood are used throughout the country?* These statistics may be shocking, but nonetheless a reality.
Early Monday morning, November 5, the Indiana Blood Mobile was eagerly awaiting blood donations from United employees. An overwhelming 24 blood donations were made to help saves Indiana lives. With the Blood Center requiring 620 people per day in order to keep up with local blood demands, every donation was appreciated. If you are interested in donating, you can visit www.indianablood.org or call (800) 632-4722.
Thank you to all who stepped up to give the gift of blood.
