What's the difference between the community blood center and a Red Cross donation?

Asked by irishdevil99 (24points) January 22nd, 2007
I realized when I gave blood today that I wasn't donating to the Red Cross (as I had just assumed), but rather to the Community Blood Center. My question, is, what's the difference? Does the Red Cross just cover areas that CBC's can't? Do CBC's and the Red Cross work together to provide blood when big emergencies happen (eg, the WTC)?
