American Red Cross Blood Donor Day, April 18, 2024  
The American Red Cross is experiencing an emergency blood shortage
  • The nation faces the lowest number of people giving blood in 20 years. Blood and platelet donations are needed now to help alleviate the shortage and ensure lifesaving medical procedures are not delayed.
  • Over the last 20 years, the number of people donating blood to the Red Cross has fallen by more than 40%.
  • Additional challenges lie ahead as winter weather and seasonal illnesses like the flu and COVID-19 may compound the dire blood supply situation the nation currently faces.
  • Blood products are currently going to hospitals faster than blood donations are coming in. In recent weeks, the Red Cross has had to limit distributions of some of the most transfused blood types to hospitals.
  • Make an appointment to give blood or platelets now by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
Karpinski Engineering (3135 Euclid Ave, CLE 44115) will be holding a blood drive Wednesday March 13th from 9:00 - 3:00 p.m., if this time and place works better, all are welcome!
