SAN ANTONIO –
It's a new year to give back and make a difference, San Antonio!
A simple way to give back and save a life is to consider giving blood.
Thanks to one of our KSAT COMMUNITY partners, University Health System, there will be a citywide blood drive from Jan. 22-25.
1 pint of blood can save 3 lives
Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood
Approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the U.S.
Nearly 7,000 units of platelets & 10,000 units of plasma are needed daily in the U.S.
- Blood has a shelf life of only 42 days
San Antonio is the seventh-largest city in the United States and is home to over 1.49 million people, can you imagine how many lives we could save if more of us gave blood?
Thank you to all of our KSAT COMMUNITY partners: Energy Transfer, San Antonio Area Chevy Dealers and University Health System for making a difference and making these community outreach events possible.
