Blood do­na­tions have fallen short of ex­pec­ta­tions for the past two months, re­sult­ing in about 61,000 fewer do­na­tions than needed and caus­ing a sig­nif­i­cant draw down of the Red Cross blood sup­ply. The short­fall is the equiv­a­lent of the Red Cross not col­lect­ing any blood do­na­tions for more than four days. “It’s cru­cial that peo­ple do­nate now to meet the needs of pa­tients ev­ery day and to be pre­pared for emer­gen­cies that re­quire sig­nif­i­cant vol­umes of do­nated blood,” said Nick Gehrig, com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor, Red Cross Blood Ser­vices.“Ev­ery day, blood and platelet donors can help save lives, and right now these he­roes are needed to give as soon as pos­si­ble.” To sched­ule an ap­point­ment to do­nate, use the freeBlood Donor App, visit red­cross­ or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733 2767). The Red Cross has added more than 25,000 ad­di­tional ap­point­ment slots at do­na­tion cen­ters and com­mu­nity blood drives across the coun­try over the next few weeks to ac­com­mo­date more donors. Do­na­tion ap­point­ments and com­ple­tion of aRapidPass on­line health his­tory ques­tion­naire are en­cour­aged to help re­duce the time it takes to do­nate.
