While donors across the country have rolled up a sleeve to give this summer, the American Red Cross is still faced with a severe blood shortage.

The Red Cross needs to collect over 1,000 additional blood donations each day to meet the current demand as hospitals respond to an unusually high number of traumas and emergency room visits.

Donors of all blood types- especially type O blood and those giving donations- are urged to make an appointment to give now.

And as a thank you, everyone who donates this month will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card by email, be automatically entered to win gas for up to a year, and be entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm.

To schedule an appointment, visit, using the Red Cross Blood Donor app, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or enable the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
