School is over, but the need for blood donations is not
School is over, but the need for blood donations is not

Now that school is out, the need for blood donations is even greater.

High school and college students donate about 20 percent of the blood collected through the American Red Cross, so the organization is anticipating a drop in donations this summer.

“Just because summer is here, it doesn’t mean donating blood is on vacation, too,” said Todd Kulman, Communications Program Manager for the Great Lakes Region of the American Red Cross. “You might find there’s a lot of fun to be had in donating blood, or even sponsoring a blood drive of your own.”

The American Red Cross’ Great Lakes Blood Service Region must collect about 650 units of blood a day to meet patient need in hospitals. If you’d like to donate during any of the scheduled drives below, call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit  the American Red Cross website.
