The American Red Cross has launched an appeal nationwide for blood and platelet donations to help address a winter blood donation shortage. Platelet and type O negative and B negative blood donations are especially needed at this time, according to a media release from the organization.
Blood donations to the Red Cross during the busy holiday season and winter weather months of November and December were already more than 28,000 donations below expectations.
Eligible donors are encouraged to make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the Blood Donor App, visiting www.redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.
