Summer is a challenging time to collect enough blood and platelet donations to meet patient needs.
The American Red Cross is encouraging eligible blood donors of all blood types, especially those with type O negative, B negative and A negative blood, to make and keep donation appointments to help maintain the blood supply and prevent a shortage.
With your help, we can make this happen – ensuring blood is available now and all summer long to help save lives in our community and across the country.
This summer, there are 100 chances to give hope with the Red Cross by giving blood. Visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS to learn more and make an appointment.
