The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Description:
The Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Blood Services Region is one of the largest Red Cross Blood Regions in the United States. The Region must supply area medical facilities with 1000 units of blood every day in order to meet the needs of patients in the Community. Every day approximately 30 blood drives are sponsored throughout the Region, at businesses, religious organizations, schools, and community centers.
The blood collected by the Red Cross goes to cancer patients, surgery patients, accidents victims, burn victims; to whomever needs this gift of life. Our goal and our mission is the relief of human suffering.

History:
During World War II, at the request of the Military, the American Red Cross initiated a national blood program that collected over 13 million pints of blood for use by the Armed Forces. The Blood Services branch of the Red Cross was established after World War II, when the Red Cross introduced the first nationwide civilian blood program. The American Red Cross is the largest provider of blood in the country.
