Blood Shortages Make For Summer Opportunities For Red Cross Blood Drives

Presented By McDonald’s, I’m Lovin’ It!

The Red Cross asks those who feel healthy to make it a summer full of life by donating blood. Your donation helps ensure blood is available for patients who rely on lifesaving transfusions. With vacations, outdoor activities and school breaks, summer is a challenging time to collect enough blood donations to meet the needs of patients. Before you dive into your summer plans, will you give blood to help ensure the supply doesn’t take a dip?

  • [FOR DRIVES MAY 28-JUNE 13] In thanks for your support, all who come to give May 28-June 13 will receive a limited-edition Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.
  • [FOR DRIVES JUNE 14-30 ONLY] Come to give blood June 14-30 and get a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card by email, thanks to Amazon. Restrictions apply. See additional information and details at RedCrossBlood.org/Together.

In most cases, there’s no blood donation deferral if you received a COVID-19 vaccine and you’re symptom-free and feeling well when you come to give. Learn more at RedCrossBlood.org.
