  • Red Cross in critical need of blood, platelet donors

    Blood donations have fallen short of expectations for the past two months, resulting in about 61,000 fewer donations than needed and causing a significant draw down of the Red Cross blood supply. The shortfall is the equivalent of the Red Cross not collecting any blood donations for more than four days.

    To schedule an appointment to donate, use the free Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call (800) RED CROSS or (800) 733-2767).
