“Summer time is always tough on our blood supply,” says Paul Adams, Public Relations Manager for The Blood Center. “It’s because of partnerships with organizations like the Audubon Nature Institute and our community shopping centers that blood is available to patients in our area when they need it.”
The Blood Center, a nonprofit organization, is the primary supplier of blood to more than 30 area hospitals and outpatient facilities throughout Southeast LA and Southern MS.
Studies show one in three of us will need blood at some point in our lives.
To maintain a healthy and stable community blood supply, The Blood Center must collect between 300 to 350 pints of blood every day.
