It turns out that only 37 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to give blood. That's 60 million less than earlier estimates.

Unfortunately, not all of that eligible population donates. In fact, the blood center community says if each person eligible gave blood at least once more than they do currently, then there would be no blood shortages.

Carol Daws with the Southeastern Community Blood Center said, "One thing you should think about, if you're part of the lucky 37 percent and you can donate blood, you're really special and it's important that you come out and give blood."

The Southeastern Community Blood Center is always open for donations and they need them. So if you're interested in giving blood, you can get more information by clicking the SCBC link below.
