Blood is needed every day for transfusions in emergencies, during surgery and for those requiring outpatient transfusions. Blood is a renewable resource that healthy donors can give every eight weeks.

One pint of blood can be used to help treat as many as two-three people. It takes approximately 45 minutes to donate a unit of blood.
