Roughly 2,000 blood donations are needed each day in the New York-New Jersey region. Especially helpful are Type O Negative blood donations, which are universally accepted by all patients regardless of blood type. However, all blood types are needed. Each blood donation can save up to three lives. Donations are used to help victims of life-threatening accidents and disease, help mothers and newborn babies and many others in need of the help a blood donation can provide.
