Roanoke, Huntington churches set June blood drives

The Red Cross says giving blood this summer is as easy as one, two, three.

"Think of it this way," says Sharyn Whitman, CEO for the Indiana-Ohio Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. "One: It takes about an hour to donate blood. Two: Someone in America needs blood every two seconds. And three: up to three lives can potentially be saved through a single blood donation."

Red Cross officials hope it's that kind of thinking that can help people see it's relatively simple to make a difference.
