Red Cross asking for blood, platelet donors to come forward
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13)- The American Red Cross is asking for donors to continue to make and keep appointments to help overcome “the ongoing emergency blood and platelet shortage that has significantly impacted the nation’s blood supply.”
The Red Cross said the supply is the lowest it has seen at this time of year in more than a decade.
Anyone who donates from Nov. 1-12 will be entered to win a trip for two to Hawaii. The trip includes plane tickets for two, hotel accommodations for nine nights, meals, $1,000 gift card for expenses and on-trip transportation with tour stops from Honolulu to Maui. Plus, those who come to donate Nov. 1-23 will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card* by email, thanks to Amazon.**
Blood drive safety
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including face masks for donors and staff, regardless of vaccination status – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive.
