The American Red Cross asks people to book a time to give blood or platelets now to address a recent drop in donation appointments that could lead to fewer transfusions for patients in the weeks ahead. Type O blood donors are especially needed to ensure a strong blood supply.
The start of summer can shake up normal routines, but it’s important for donation appointments to stay on the calendar.
Appointments are critical this week for people waiting for lifesaving care. Download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to schedule a time to give now.
