Summer activities and vacations are impacting blood and platelet donations. For the second straight year, blood donation levels in June and July are much lower than expected.
As a result, the American Red Cross has issued an emergency request for donations of all types, especially types O, A negative and B negative.
I hope you will give thoughtful consideration to this request. Your donation is needed and appreciated more than ever right now.
To schedule your summer blood donation appointment, please visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
