Severe Blood Shortage: New Jersey Donors Needed Now

The American Red Cross is experiencing a severe blood shortage as the number of trauma cases, organ transplants and elective surgeries rise—and deplete the nation’s blood inventory. Donors of all blood types—especially type O and those giving platelets—are urged to make an appointment to give as soon as possible to prevent further impact to patients.

Patients need the help of the American people. Schedule an appointment to give blood now by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
