Need for Blood Donations Increases in Summer

Summer weather is here, along with warmer weather and more fun activities that you can fit into three short months. But during the summer, the American Red Cross sees a significant drop in blood donations.

According to Sue Thesenga, external communications manager for the American Red Cross, “during June, July and August, there are about two fewer donors than needed at each Red Cross blood drive. This can add up to more than 100,000 fewer donations during the summer.” About 100,000 donations less in the summer. That is a huge seasonal decline. Donations of all blood types are needed to make sure there is enough supply for those who need it.

Donating doesn’t take very long, can make a huge impact for the recipient and there are a lot of opportunities right in our area. To find upcoming blood donation opportunities, you can get the Red Cross Blood Donor app, go online to redcrossblood.org, or call (800) RED-CROSS to schedule an appointment or learn more.
