The American Red Cross is experiencing a shortage of critically needed blood and platelet products. Blood donors of all types, particularly AB, O, A negative and B negative, and platelet donors are needed.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. Download the Blood Donor App at redcrossblood.org to keep informed.
