Blood supplies are extremely low!  By spending 15 - 20 minutes donating blood, you can save the lives of up to three people!

The American Red Cross Blood Services must collect enough blood each and every day to meet the needs of accident victims, cancer patients, children with blood disorders and others. We need everyone’s involvement to ensure that blood is available to meet the needs of patients.  You can help the Red Cross overcome the shortage of blood donations by doing more than giving a blood donation.  Help spread the word about the need and invite family and friends to donate blood. 

All blood types are needed!  Donors with type O negative, O positive, A negative or B negative are especially encouraged to give at this time. Type O negative is the universal blood type and can be transfused to any patient. This blood type is often used in emergency situations when doctors do not have time to check a patient’s blood type before transfusion.
