The US is facing a severe blood shortage as the coronavirus outbreak threatens the availability of our nation’s supply.
In challenging times, we are often frustrated by the feeling of not being able to do something constructive to help. This is an easy – and safe – way to provide practical help.

FROM THE RED CROSS
“Right now, we are experiencing a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during this coronavirus outbreak. Healthy individuals are needed to donate now to help patients counting on lifesaving blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma. This blood shortage could impact patients who need surgery, victims of car accidents and other emergencies, or patients fighting cancer. One of the most important things you can do to ensure we don’t have another health care crisis on top of coronavirus is to give now.”
