The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help overcome a chronic blood shortage.
The Red Cross regularly experiences a blood shortage in August when regular donors may delay giving due to summer vacations or the back-to-school rush.
Those who donate platelets now through August 31 will be given a $25 Home Depot card and a $5 Target card. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days, and Power Red cells, drawn with a special machine, can be donated every 112 days.
Those with the following blood types are invited to donate: O-, O+, A-, B-. Appointments can be scheduled by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visitingredcrossblood.org or calling 1-800- RED CROSS (1-800- 733-2767).
Walk-ins are accepted, but appointments are encouraged to ensure that everyone is seen quickly.
