Red Cross Encouraging Diverse Groups to Donate Blood Featured

Written by

The American Red Cross is encouraging members of the community of all races and ethnic backgrounds to give blood to help ensure a diverse blood supply. 

For a small percentage of the population, finding someone else with the same type of blood can be difficult. The vast majority of people are either A, B, O, or AB blood types, but there are some blood types that are unique to certain racial and ethnic groups. 

That is why the Red Cross is calling on those with various backgrounds to donate blood. To find out when and where you can donate, click here, or to host of Red Cross Blood drive, click here.
