(UNDATED) - Red Cross officials say that while every two seconds someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion, the average blood donor in the American Red Cross, River Valley Blood Services Region's 68-county service area donates blood an average of only one time each year.

"We need strong turnout from donors during the fall, both to replenish blood supplies depleted during summer vacation season and boost supplies before the upcoming holiday season," stated Linda Voss, CEO, of the River Valley Region, in a prepared statement. "The blood products on the shelves today are what help save lives in an emergency. Blood and platelets can come only from generous volunteer donors."
