American Red Cross Needs More Blood Donations This Winter
The need for blood donations doesn't slow down just because the weather gets colder. People get sick or injured all year long, and the American Red Cross is asking for your help. There are lots of chances this month to donate around the Tri-State.
How you can help
Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
