American Red Cross issues Emergency Call for Blood Donors

 

American Red Cross

American Red CrossNashville, TN – A donation shortfall over the winter holidays is prompting the American Red Cross to issue an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to give now to prevent a blood shortage from continuing throughout winter and affecting patient care.

The Red Cross collected more than 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s than needed to sustain a sufficient blood supply. During this period, about 1,350 fewer blood drives were hosted by volunteer sponsor groups than required to meet patient needs as busy holiday schedules kept many donors away.

Fewer drives, busy holiday schedules lead to blood shortage says American Red Cross. (Amanda Romney/American Red Cross)
