American Red Cross urges public to donate blood during summer months

From the American Red Cross:

Blood and platelet donations through the American Red Cross are on the decline, but patients can’t take a summer break from needing blood.

Right now the Red Cross has an emergency need for blood and platelet donors of all types. Make donating blood part of your summer plans and help ensure an adequate blood supply for patients in need.

Call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit to make an appointment to give the gift of life! Patients are counting on you!
