Red Cross looking for you to end shortage

American Red Cross is hoping that you step up and donate for people relying on blood transfusions, especially as there is a blood shortage both nationally and locally. Regional Communications Director for American Red Cross, Justin Kern, says hospital partners have made it clear that there is an increase in the need for blood. According to Kern, a couple of possible factors include increases in trauma and also the return to normalcy.



Red Cross is trying to pump up donation numbers by offering you a chance to enter local and national drawings through July in exchange for a donation. One drawing even includes free gas for a year. Kern says that can be a bonus on top of a good feeling for helping those in need. Kern also says that what often keeps people from making a donation in the first place is fear of the unknown. He suggests you talk to people who donate regularly. 



Type O blood is the most urgently needed. A list of upcoming Door and Kewaunee County blood drives can be found pictured below.
