Give Count Dracula the boot this Halloween. Don’t give him your blood, instead donate to Red Cross

Atlanta,GA--  This Halloween, Count Dracula is not the only one who needs your blood. The American Red Cross reminds us that regular blood donations are needed to maintain a safe and adequate blood supply for patients in our local hospitals.  

The first of October marks the beginning of the Halloween season; but, for patients undergoing treatment for cancer, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims there is something much scarier than ghosts and goblins knocking on our doors asking for treats—not having blood available when it is needed. Volunteer blood donors are the primary source of blood used for transfusions, and the blood must be there before it is needed in order to help save lives.

This summer the Red Cross had a particularly difficult time recruiting enough blood donors to meet the requirements of our community’s hospitals and the patients they serve.
