Red Cross needs summer blood donations

Red Cross facing chronic blood shortage
The American Red Cross is calling on you to give blood in these final weeks of summer - in a season where donations are always low.
As a special thank you, those who come out to give blood or platelets with the Red Cross now through August 31 will be emailed a $5 Target eGiftCard. A critical shortage of Red Cross blood donations may lead to delays in urgent medical care to vulnerable patients. People that donated blood earlier this summer may be eligible to donate again. Donors can also complete pre-reading and health history questions online at Red Cross RapidPass and print out the form on the day of the blood drive. There is a chronic blood shortage as donations are down and all blood types are needed.
The blood drive is named in honor of Dr. Charles Drew, the African-American physician who pioneered the American Red Cross system of blood banking. Appointments will take priority, but walk-ins are welcome. "This blood drive is our way of giving our community an opportunity to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor". High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements. For more information, please visit redcross.org or cruzrojaamericana.org, or visit us on Twitter at @RedCross. - T.T.
