Blood donations are still needed

As surgeries resume after the delta surge, the American Red Cross is asking the public to give blood.

The American Red Cross is still reporting an extreme shortage of blood supplies. Since early summer, blood donations haven’t kept up with high demand from patients whose disease advanced while care was deferred during the COVID-19 crisis, resulting in more blood transfusions.

Meanwhile, Asante employees and the general public are asked to donate blood. You can find the nearest collection location and make an appointment online at or download the Blood Donor app.

To qualify, you must be at least 16 years old, in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. See other eligibility criteria.
