The American Red Cross has issued an “urgent need” request for blood donations.
The donations are being asked for to prevent another shortage like they had at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March. The Red Cross is asking people to call and make appointments to donate.
They are offering the following incentives to potential donors:
- Now through May 31: Those who come to give will receive a free We’re All in This Together Red Cross T-shirt, by mail, while supplies last.
- June 1-30: Those who come to give will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, thanks to Amazon.
