Red Cross In Desperate Need Of Donors And Blood Drive Hosts

Local News

The American Red Cross says its facing a severe blood shortage and urgently needs blood and platelet donors to give now to avoid delays in lifesaving medical care for patients.

Volunteer blood drive hosts are also critically needed to prevent the shortage from worsening this winter, especially with the holidays around the corner which historically bring a further decline in donations.

During September and October, the Red Cross collected more than 21,000 fewer blood and platelet donations than what hospitals needed.

Blood and platelet donors of all blood types, especially type O, are urged to make an appointment to donate at RedCrossBlood.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
