Blood donors give patients the chance to create a lifetime of hope

ST. PAUL, Minn. — With summer right around the corner, the American Red Cross asks eligible donors to make giving blood as much a part of their summer plans as barbecues, ball games and road trips. Donors of all blood types are needed.

“Blood donations often decline during the summer when schools are out of session and families are vacationing,” said Geoff Kaufmann, CEO, North Central Blood Services Region. “But the need blood is constant. Eligible donors are encouraged to make an appointment now to roll up a sleeve and give patients a chance for hope this summer and throughout the year.”

To help kick off summer, those who present to give blood between May 24 and 26 will receive a Red Cross cooling towel while supplies last.

The Red Cross provides blood to approximately 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. Each day, the Red Cross must collect about 15,000 blood donations to meet the needs of patients at these facilities.

Learn more and make an appointment to donate blood by visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities:

Fillmore: May 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Eagle Cliff Campground, 35455 State Highway 16 in Lanesboro, Minn.

May 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Eagle Cliff Campground, 35455 State Highway 16 in Lanesboro, Minn.

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 consent 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.
