Urgent Need for Blood and Platelet Donors
The American Red Cross is facing a looming blood shortage, leading to an urgent need for donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give. Donations were down approximately 8 percent over the last 11 weeks, resulting in about 80,000 fewer donations than expected.
With schools out of session and many regular donors busy or on vacation, it’s important to remember that patients don’t get a break from needing blood — the need is constant.
Many people say they don’t give blood or platelets because they were never asked. Consider yourself asked! Please roll up a sleeve and give blood for patients in need and help prevent an emergency shortage. For more information or to find a nearby donation opportunity, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
