American Red Cross In Urgent Need of Blood Donors

Due to a critical shortage of donated blood across the nation, the American Red Cross is asking all eligible blood and platelet donors of all blood types to make an appointment to give blood as soon as possible. In May and June 2011, while the need for blood remained steady, donations were at the lowest level the Red Cross has experienced in more than 12 years – approximately 6 percent lower than what the organization typically experiences during this timeframe. All blood types are needed, and there is a special need for O negative, B negative and A negative. Listed below is the current blood drives scheduled. Please call 1-800-Red-Cross to set up your appointment today!
