Right now, the American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood. Busy holiday schedules, winter weather and illness have led to a winter blood donation shortage that could affect patient care. Patients are counting us to help meet their needs.
Blood donors of all types are urgently needed. Donors with type O negative and B negative – in particular – are critically needed and are encouraged to give a Power Red donation, if available!
Donors can schedule a donation appointment online, through the app or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
