The American Red Cross is facing a national blood crisis – its worst blood shortage in over a decade, posing a concerning risk to patient care. Doctors have been forced to make difficult decisions about who receives blood transfusions and who will need to wait until more products become available.

The Red Cross has experienced about a 10% decline in the number of people donating blood since the pandemic began and continues to confront relentless issues due to COVID-19, like ongoing blood drive cancellations and staffing limitations. Additionally, the Red Cross saw a 62% drop in blood drives at schools and colleges since the pandemic began. As a result, Gen Z, which accounted for nearly one-quarter of donors in 2019, made up just about 10% in 2021 due to the drop in on-campus opportunities.

Blood and platelet donations are critically needed to help prevent further delays in vital medical treatments. In thanks, those who come to give blood, platelets or plasma in January will automatically be entered for a chance to win a getaway to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles. As an extra thank-you from the Red Cross, those who come to donate will also be automatically entered to win a home theater package and a $500 e-gift card.
