The American Red Cross Penn-Jersey Blood Services Region faces a critical blood shortage and has issued an appeal for blood donors.

The following blood drives are scheduled in South Jersey:

The American Red Cross blood supply has reached emergency levels with fewer donations than expected. This shortfall leaves the Red Cross with half of the readily available blood products on hand now than at this time last year.

The Red Cross is calling on all eligible blood donors — now more than ever — to roll up a sleeve and give as soon as possible. All blood types are needed, but especially O positive, O negative, B negative and A negative in order to meet patient demand this summer.
