Blood Donors Needed

Thousands of people have responded to the emergency call for blood and platelet donations issued by the American Red Cross in early July, but there continues to be a critical summer blood shortage.

To schedule an appointment to donate, use the Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.orgor call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

As a special thank you, those who come out to give blood or platelets with the Red Cross through Aug. 31 will be emailed a $5 Target eGiftCard™.*
