LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Several opportunities to donate blood are coming to the Las Vegas Valley for National Volunteer Month in Apr.

The American Red Cross calls giving blood "a simple way to make a profound difference in the lives of patients."

Nearly 2.8 million people donated blood through the Red Cross last year, according to the organization. 

The Red Cross said volunteers are the only source of blood for those in need of transfusions and all blood types are needed this spring.
