One in three people will need blood in their lifetime. Blood that is donated today will likely be transfused into a patient within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant.
OneBlood is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood to more than 200 hospital partners and their patients throughout most of Florida, parts of Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. The OneBlood name is a constant reminder of the collective power we share to save another person’s life.
