Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: January 22, 2021 10:53 AM

To: All Senate members
Subject: Designating January 2021 as Blood Donor Month
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce a resolution designating January 2021 as “National Blood Donor Month” in Pennsylvania.

According to the American Red Cross, someone is in need of blood every 2 seconds. Blood donation saves countless lives, but donations are often difficult to receive in the winter months due to inclement weather, holiday activity and illnesses - despite the increase in demand from blood banks.

Blood taken from just one donor can help save the lives of up to 3 people. Donating blood is a simple, safe, lifesaving and selfless gift that millions of Americans are eligible to give and it only takes about 10 minutes.

My resolution would help bring awareness to the constant needs of blood banks in Pennsylvania, and encourage eligible individuals to donate blood and help save lives. I invite you to join me in co-sponsoring this important initiative.
