TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The American Red Cross is in urgent need of blood donations as elective surgeries and other procedures continue following the COVID-19 pandemic. The hope is to avoid another shortage, like the one caused in March by the novel coronavirus.

Donors who sign up now through May 31 will receive a Red Cross T-shirt by mail, according to a Red Cross news release. Those who register to donate by June 1 to June 31 will receive a $5 Amazon gift card, while supplies last.

Healthy people who wish to donate can make an appointment through the Red Cross website or over the phone at 1-800-RED-CROSS.
