The American Red Cross is experiencing an emergency blood and platelet shortage. A sharp drop in blood donor turnout has contributed to the lowest post-summer blood inventory level in six years, and donors of all blood types – especially type O – and platelet donors are urged to make an appointment to give now and in the weeks ahead to help meet the needs of patients this fall.
Patients are counting on the generosity and kindness of blood donors. Use the Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS to make an appointment to help save lives.
