The American Red Cross is looking for blood donors as soon as possible as hospitals in Yakima and across the state resume surgical procedures and patient treatments that were paused earlier this spring because of COVID-19. Red Cross officials say hospital demand for blood has increased 30% in the last several weeks after sharp declines in early April.
All those who come to give through May 31 will receive a special Red Cross T-shirt by mail, while supplies last. And thanks to Amazon, all those who come to give June 1-30 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email.
You can make an appointment to donate in the weeks and months ahead by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Because of the current pandemic donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while giving blood.
