Red Cross facing a national blood shortage

The American Red Cross is experiencing a national blood shortage. Fewer donors than
needed gave this summer, drawing down the national blood supply and reducing distributions of some of the most needed blood types to hospitals. Hurricane Idalia further strained the blood supply with blood
drive cancellations and reduced blood and platelet donations in affected areas.
Donors of all blood types are urgently needed, and there is an emergency need for platelet donors
and type O blood donors to make an appointment to give now to ensure patients across the
country continue to receive critical medical care.
When Idalia slammed into the Southeast – leading to widespread power outages, travel hazards and
flooding – the storm also forced the cancellation of over a dozen blood drives and caused hundreds of
blood and platelet donations to go uncollected. This compounded a shortfall of about 30,000 donations in August. Right now, blood product distributions to hospitals are outpacing the number of blood donations coming in.
The Red Cross needs blood and platelet donors now. Schedule an appointment to give by
downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED
CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
In thanks for helping rebuild the blood supply, all who come to give Sept. 1-18 will receive a limited-
edition Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last. Those who come to give throughout September will also
receive a coupon for a free haircut by email, thanks to Sport Clips Haircuts. Plus, they’ll be automatically
entered for a chance to win a VIP NASCAR racing experience. Details are available at
RedCrossBlood.org/RaceToGive.

September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month
One in 3 African American blood donors is a match for people with sickle cell disease. To help ensure
patients have the blood products they need, the Red Cross launched the Sickle Cell Initiative in 2021 to
grow the number of blood donors who are Black and improve health outcomes for patients. Together
longtime and first-time blood donors are helping patients with sickle cell manage their symptoms and
showing support for their community.
Joined by Blood is the initiative’s focus during Sickle Cell Awareness Month in September and continues
through October. This year, the Red Cross is proud to partner with organizations focused on mentorship,
including 100 Black Men of America, Inc.; Kier’s Hope Foundation, Inc.; historically Black colleges and
universities and member organizations of the National Pan-Hellenic Council; as well as the Black Radio
Hall of Fame and others, who are all showing up for patients with sickle cell by hosting blood drives. To
learn more, visit RedCrossBlood.org/OurBlood.
