The holiday season has passed, but the effects of seasonal activities and holiday travel are proving to have lasting effects on the blood supply.   A holiday donation shortfall is now prompting the American Red Cross to issue an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to give now to prevent a prolonged blood shortage.

Blood and platelet donors of all blood types, especially type O negative and O positive, urgently needed to replenish the blood supply following a critical blood shortage.

You can be among those making a difference.

Walk-ins are always welcome.  To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-733-2767.
