Unsure if you can donate? Individuals 17 years of age and older (16 with parental consent), weighing at least 110 pounds, and generally in good health may be eligible to donate blood. The need for blood and platelets is constant – every two seconds someone in the U.S. is in need of blood. On average, the Red Cross must collect about 15,000 pints of blood every day to meet the needs of patients across the country, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood and platelets for those in need of transfusions – so please, donate blood and save a life!
