Have you donated a gift of life lately? An emergency blood shortage now exists. During blood shortages, essential medical procedures may be delayed and distributions to hospitals of some of the most transfused blood types are being limited now. The American Red Cross urges the need for everyone’s help to alleviate the shortage and ensure lifesaving medical procedures are not delayed. Donate and encourage others to provide a gift of life.
