The Red Cross reports every two seconds there is a need for blood in hospitals.The donations help for patient emergencies like accidents, burns victims, to those being treatment for cancer and sickle cell.

Officials with the organization say there were some 61,000 fewer donations during the last two months, causing a significant draw down of the blood supply.

That means the Red Cross needs to collect 14,000 blood donations every day.

Donations normally go down in summer because there are fewer blood drives, especially at schools, and the worst time in summer is around the Fourth of July, the Red Cross said. Almost one-third fewer new blood donors came out to give last summer than during the rest of the year due in part to schools - where blood drives are held and where new donors give - being out of session during the summer months.
