Urgent Need for Blood Donors

The American Red Cross has reissued an urgent call for blood and platelet donors of all blood types to give now, and help address a now-critical winter blood donation shortage. 

Severe winter weather has more than doubled the number of canceled Red Cross blood drives since early last month, causing over 16,500 blood and platelet donations to go uncollected. 

Right now, blood and platelet donations are being distributed to hospitals faster than they are coming in. More donations are critically needed in the coming days so that patients can continue to receive the lifesaving treatments they need.
