American Red Cross encourages you to give blood in March

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The American Red Cross is encouraging people to give blood in March, for Red Cross Month.

The organization has made blood donations easier with its Blood Donor App and RapidPass. With the app, the Red Cross says donors can schedule and manage donation appointments, access their donor card, track the impact of their donations and earn rewards. With RapidPass, donors can save time by completing their pre-donation reading and health history questions online.

Laura MacGuire with the American Red Cross says there's a critical need for platelets right now and O-Negative blood.

If you'd like to donate this month, there are many upcoming blood drives in southern Wisconsin. Or you can call 1-800-RED-CROSS to set up an appointment.
