Blood Shortage


The American Red Cross is reporting a critical blood shortage and has issued an emergency call for eligible blood and platelet donors of all blood types to give now.

Potential donors are asked to make an appointment to give blood or platelets by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.

New and current donors of all blood types are needed to help ensure the Red Cross can meet the needs of patients every day and is prepared for emergencies that require significant volumes of donated blood.

The support of blood donors ensures that blood products are there for trauma victims, premature babies, patients going through cancer treatment and others who rely on the generosity of volunteer donors.
