According to the American Red Cross, less than 2 to 3% of the eligible donors in Southern California donate blood. One pint of blood can save up to 3 lives and about every 2 seconds someone needs a blood transfusion. Every year, ANCA Glendale Chapter partners with City of Glendale’s Week of Remembrance Committee, the American Red Cross, and several affiliated community-based organizations to organize a blood drive to give blood to those in need and to commemorate the Armenian Genocide and lives lost to man’s inhumanity to man.
