The American Red Cross sees a pretty big decline in blood and platelet donations during holiday weeks – around 21 percent. When blood donations drop, so does the availability of blood products for hospital patients. Donors can help ensure blood is ready when needed by making an appointment to give in the coming weeks.
As a thank you for helping, all who come to give June 30-July 10 will receive an exclusive Red Cross recycled cotton tote bag, while supplies last.
