The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help prevent a blood
Blood donations often decline in August as final summer vacations are planned and back-to-school activities ramp up.
On average, during the summer months, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed.
To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
