Ten Things I Hate About BS (Blood Shortages)

9 /25

The American Red Cross says the nation is facing its worst blood shortage in more than a decade, citing a drop in blood drives due to the pandemic.​

The National Blood Crisis is threatening patient care and forcing doctors to make tough choices about who can receive blood transfusions. The Red Cross — which provides some 40% of the blood supply in the US — has had less than a one-day supply of critical blood types since the beginning of 2022 and has had to limit blood product distributions to hospitals. At times, up to one-quarter of hospital blood needs are not being met.​

That’s why the Avalara Marketing team has come together to support our local community, hospitals and frontline medical teams with a virtual blood drive kicking off on Valentine’s Day through the end of February. When you pledge to donate, you will be provided resources to either donate blood or volunteer at a local blood bank near you. ​

AvaHeart and help us reach our goal! #AvaHeartBloodDrive​
