The American Red Cross has an emergency blood shortage. The Red Cross national blood inventory is the lowest it’s been at this time of year since 2015, with less than a day’s supply of certain blood types in recent weeks. The Red Cross is working around the clock to meet the blood needs of hospitals and patients – but can’t do it alone. While there is not an immediate need for additional blood drive locations, more blood donors are needed now. We need your help!
To sign up to donate blood go to their website: RedCrossBlood.org/SleevesUp
Important to know: Donors may still donate after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Knowing the name of the manufacturer is critical in determining blood donation eligibility.
