The Seasons are Changing, But the Need for Blood Donors is Constant

Posted on 3-16-2023

The American Red Cross is urging people to give blood or platelets during March to help avoid a spring blood shortage.

Donors of all blood types, especially type O donors and platelet donors, are encouraged to make and keep appointments to donate. Book your preferred appointment location & time to give by visiting, downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App, calling 1-800-RED CROSS, or by enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.

In appreciation for helping, everyone who comes to give blood by March 31st, 2023,​​​​ will receive a $10 Visa® Prepaid Card by email. Plus, they’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win a $3,000 Visa Prepaid Card – which could help toward expenses like gas or groceries. There will be five lucky winners! Details are available HERE.
