Statement | June 17, 2020

Our partners at the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) sent us the following message to share with you:

Right now, throughout the country, blood centers are reporting inventories falling to their lowest levels since the early stages of the pandemic. In addition, blood drives continue to be canceled, as many businesses, schools and community organizations remain closed, and social distancing measures have limited blood centers’ ability to collect blood at pre-pandemic levels.

AABB, America’s Blood Centers, and the American Red Cross are joining together to urge eligible individuals to make an appointment to donate blood now.

Please contact one of the following organizations to find a local blood collection site and to schedule an appointment to donate:

AABB: www.aabb.org; +1.301.907.6977

America’s Blood Centers: www.americasblood.org; +1.202.393.5725

American Red Cross: www.redcrossblood.org; +1.800.RED CROSS (+1.800.733.2767)

We hope you’ll heed the call and help reduce the risk of blood shortages.
