Red Cross blood supply at historic low levels

Give the gift of life this December and be rewarded 

During the season of giving, we’re used to seeing retail shelves full of wonderful gifts. American Red Cross blood bank shelves haven’t been so lucky. There just aren’t enough blood donors to keep up with hospital demand, which has left the Red Cross blood supply at the lowest levels in more than a decade. Patients need YOU. Schedule an appointment now to give the most thoughtful gift this holiday season.  

The historically low Red Cross blood supply levels have forced some hospitals to defer patients from major surgery like organ transplants and have created delays in essential care. The need for blood never stops, even as many of us gear up to celebrate the holidays again with family & friends. Before or after you enjoy time well-spent with loved ones, will you please book a blood donation appointment

‘Tis the season to give AND receive!
