Every two seconds someone needs blood in the United States and every week, 200 people in Lackawanna County make the time to give blood at an American Red Cross blood drive. By donating just one pint of blood, they can help up to three people. The dedication of blood donors in Lackawanna County is amazing and allows the Red Cross to supply local hospitals with the blood needed by the community. By calling your local chapter, you can schedule an appointment at a blood drive near you. To make an appointment or to find out more about blood donation, call Blood Services at the American Red Cross of Lackawanna County at 207-0106.
