For more than 40 years, Delgado Travel Agency has been offering travel to customers by providing comprehensive packages that take flights, hotels, rental cars, and money transfers into account. Delgado Travel Agency also supports a number of charities, including the Red Cross. One of the Red Cross’ most important initiatives is its blood drives, which are held throughout the United States.

The Red Cross states that somebody in the United States will need blood every two seconds, which creates a total of 36,000 units of red blood cells required daily in the country. A car accident victim may require as many as 100 pints of blood to be nursed back to health.

To confront this issue, the Red Cross offers people and other organizations the opportunity to host blood drives. All they need to do is find a suitable location, publicize the drive, and schedule appointments. The Red Cross handles the rest.
