The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give blood in the weeks surrounding Independence Day to help ensure a sufficient blood supply for patients now and throughout the summer.
To encourage more people to donate around Independence Day, anyone who donates blood July 1-5, 2016, will receive a limited-edition Red Cross lunch cooler, while supplies last.
Donors of all blood types are needed now. Schedule an appointment to give blood by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
