  6. Volunteer to donate blood in the U.S.:  The Red Cross provides 40% of the blood supply in the U.S. The Red Cross has experienced over 1,500 blood drive cancellations. That's 46,000+ units of blood uncollected. Every day in America, the Red Cross must collect 13,000 units of blood to meet patient demand. Accident victims, those undergoing cancer treatment and those suffering from blood diseases depend on us to survive during the COVID-19 pandemic, thus we cannot allow any disruption to the nation's blood supply. Your volunteer support is needed. Find a local blood drive by visiting https://www.redcross.org/give-blood.html or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
