Opportunities to donate blood coming to Grays Harbor as American Red Cross looks to avoid shortage

Opportunities to donate blood are coming to Grays Harbor as the American Red Cross looks to avoid a shortage by filling missing blood types.

The Red Cross is urging donors of all blood types to give now to help prevent delays in medical care this summer.

The American Red Cross’s Missing Types campaign is raising awareness of the need for more blood donors.

While thousands of blood donors have answered the call to fill the Missing Types, including types A, B, and O, more donors are needed now to help ensure patients don’t have to wait for blood products. 

The American Red Cross says that during the summer, especially around holidays like Independence Day, donations often don’t keep pace with patient needs. Make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
