Red Cross Provides Abundant Opportunity to Donate in November

Posted: Updated:

The American Red Cross invites eligible donors to give blood in November to honor those who have served the country in the U.S. armed forces.

The Red Cross serves more than 3,000 hospitals nationwide, including many Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers. Currently, all blood types are needed, especially O negative, B negative and A negative. Type O negative, the universal blood type, can potentially be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations.

Another way to honor military personnel is by making a contribution to support Service to the Armed Forces, a Red Cross program that offers resources for deployed service members and their families, provides emergency communications, and supports hospital outreach and veterans programs.
