The Red Cross collected more than 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations the weeks of Christmas and New Year's than needed to sustain a sufficient blood supply, as busy holiday schedules kept donors away. Weather, throughout the month of January, had additional effects on our blood collections.
Right now, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of most blood types, and blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in.
In addition to saving lives, your donation helps earn scholarships for our high school students!
