Red Cross issues emergency call for blood and platelet donors
Blood donations down about 10 percent in June
OMAHA, Neb. (July 9, 2013) – The American Red Cross issued an emergency request for platelet and
blood donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give because many fewer donations than expected
were received in June and the first week of July.
“We are counting on generous volunteer blood and platelet donors to step up and give now,” said Tricia
Quinn, CEO for the Red Cross Midwest Blood Services Region. “Every two seconds, someone in the U.S.
needs blood. Each day donations come up short, less blood is available for these patients in need.”
Nationwide, donations through the Red Cross were down approximately 10 percent in June, resulting in
about 50,000 fewer donations than expected. The shortfall is similar to what the Red Cross experienced
in June 2012.
June can be among the most challenging months of the year for blood and platelet donations as regular
donors delay giving while they adjust to summer schedules. High school and college blood drives
account for as much as 20 percent of Red Cross donations during the school year. Donations from those
who usually give at these drives drop by more than 80 percent when school is out for the summer. In
addition, a mid-week Independence Day holiday reduced the number of blood drives scheduled in
early July. Many sponsors, especially businesses, were unable to host drives because employees took
The Red Cross urgently needs donations to ensure an adequate blood supply is available for patients
all summer long. Each day, the Midwest Blood Services Region must collect approximately 500 blood
donations to meet patient needs. Eligible donors with types O negative, B negative and A negative blood
are especially encouraged to give. Type O negative is the universal blood type and can be transfused to
anyone who needs blood. Types A negative and B negative can be transfused to Rh positive or negative
There is also an urgent need for platelet donations. Platelets – a key clotting component of blood often
needed by cancer patients - must be transfused within five days of donation, so it’s important to have a
steady supply of platelets on hand.
How to Donate Blood
Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or
for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor
card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who
are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in
generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years
of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international
