Red Cross Requests Blood Donations

The American Red Cross urges those who have never given blood before, as well as those who have not given recently, to make an appointment to give blood or platelets now and to help sustain a sufficient community blood supply through the summer months.
While the need for blood is constant during the summer months, the Red Cross experiences a drastic decline in new donors during those months.
Nationwide, nearly one-third fewer donors gave blood last summer compared to the rest of the year. Additionally, many schools where blood drives are held are not in session, and donors often delay giving due to summer vacation plans.
About 38 percent of the population is eligible to give blood, but less than 10 percent of those eligible donate. The blood donation process takes about an hour with the actual donation only taking about 10 minutes.
