As severe weather continues to move throughout the nation, the American Red Cross is urging members to consider taking the time to donate blood when it’s safe to do so in your area. Nationally, dangerous weather conditions have led to the cancellation of over 500 blood drives since the beginning of the year, which the Red Cross says results in about 17,000 uncollected blood and platelet donations. To see when the next American Red Cross Blood Drive will be close to you, you can use the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org, or call 1-800-733-2767. Everyone who donates during the month of February will receive an Amazon gift card to their email.
