Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. The pandemic has heightened this need, including the need for plasma donors.. Also, the short supply of Type A, B and O is also in need of your donations, but all blood types are welcome as many drives have been cancelled and blood shortages continue throughout the United States.
