Red Cross Urges Blood And Platelet Donations To Make Up For Expected Shortfall Due To Fourth of July Holiday Travel

More than 40 percent of regular donors may be traveling and unavailable to give

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 29, 2015) — The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to make an appointment now to give blood or platelets and help prevent a summer shortage.

 

The call for donations is supported by a recent survey of Red Cross blood and platelet donors showing that more than 40 percent plan to travel the week before or after Independence Day, an indicator that many eligible donors may be unavailable to give. In addition, fewer blood drives are scheduled the week before and after Independence Day, because many hosting organizations postpone blood drives while people are on vacation.

Those who come to donate from July 2-6 will receive a Red Cross embroidered baseball cap, while supplies last.
