Red Cross needs summer blood donations

Red Cross

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.
