North Carolina Red Cross in Dire Need of Blood

54 blood drives statewide have been canceled due to winter storms in January, resulting in about 1,480 donations uncollected due to the weather. As February approaches, and the effects from the spread of the omicron variant and winter weather persist, the Red Cross is asking you to make an appointment now to give blood or platelets by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting  RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS. Those who donate from today through the end of the month will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card via email.
