The American Red Cross reports that about 44,000 pints of blood are needed in the U.S. every day. Donations are typically down this time of the year, so the organization is asking Lincoln residents to get out and give.  

According to the Red Cross, 1 pint of blood can save up to 3 lives.  So, the Red Cross said they want to get the word out about the importance of regular blood donations.  Joyce Halvorsen from the Nebraska Community Blood Bank said giving blood changes lives.   "They are giving another birthday they are giving another chance at life.  They're really making a difference.  Not just for the patient, but they're making a difference for that patient and their family," Joyce said.  Lincoln residents will have a chance to donate through a blood drive this month.
