If you are a healthy individual (ie. no flu-like symptoms), not at high risk (chronic disease, immunocompromised, greater than 60 years old, etc.) and willing and able to be a hero, the Red Cross needs you to donate blood. In fact, the CDC encourages these individuals to donate by making an appointment at a donation center!
The Red Cross has to collect 15,000 blood donations every day to have enough blood to help patients in 2700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. Due to COVID-19, 4500 blood drives have been cancelled. That’s a lot of patients in need and all of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive life saving blood. Let’s help ease the burden that our healthcare systems are already experiencing! So SleevesUp and help us reach our goal. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.
