Red Cross faces historically low blood supply, calls for donors

0

Blood donations always drop during the holidays, but the Red Cross, which provides nearly half of the country’s blood supply, faces a historically low supply.

They ask potential donors to make an appointment as soon as possible to avoid delays in the care of patients requiring transfusions.

Donors can make an appointment by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, by visiting their website, or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

As an added incentive to donate blood this holiday season, anyone who donates from December 17 to January 2 will receive a Red Cross long sleeve t-shirt, while supplies last.

Donors can save time by completing a RapidPass® before their appointment, which will streamline the registration process.

African American donors can also have their blood tested for sickle cell traits; the Red Cross says donations of blood from people of the same race, ethnicity and blood group have a unique ability to help patients battling sickle cell anemia.

Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows strict infection control and safety standards, including the use of face masks for donors and staff, regardless of immunization status.
