Blood donations are needed now more than ever. The Red Cross is experiencing the worst blood shortage in over a decade. The dangerously low blood supply levels have forced some hospitals to defer patients from major surgery.
Blood drives in communities affected by the recent tornadoes will be canceled or see a lower donor turnout. Donating blood during a disaster reduces local demand, ensuring more blood is available for those in need.
Thank you for making the life-saving decision to donate blood.
