Red Cross needs blood donations during pandemic

Right now, the American Red Cross has an ongoing critical need for blood product donations as uncertainties remain during this coronavirus pandemic.

Blood drives continue to be cancelled at an alarming rate and patients need a sufficient blood supply throughout the many weeks of this crisis and beyond. Healthy individuals are needed to schedule an appointment to give in the days and weeks ahead to help patients counting on lifesaving blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma.

This blood shortage could impact patients who need surgery, victims of car accidents and other emergencies, or patients fighting cancer.

Visit today to schedule an appointment at the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center or the Pomona Blood Donation Center.
