While donors across the country have rolled up a sleeve to give this summer, the need for blood and platelets remains crucial for patients relying on lifesaving transfusions. The American Red Cross continues to experience a severe blood shortage and donors of all blood types, especially type O and those giving platelets, are urged to make an appointment and give now. Right now, the Red Cross needs to collect more than one-thousand additional blood donations each day to meet current demand as hospitals respond to an unusually high number of traumas and emergency room visits, organ transplants, and elective surgeries. To schedule an appointment to give blood or platelets you can use the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting their website redcrossblood.org, or calling 1-800-733-2767.
