American Red Cross Blood Drive

Every 2 seconds someone in the United States is in need of blood. In January 2022, The Red Cross issued a statement saying they had “experienced a 10% decline in the number of people donating blood since the beginning of the pandemic and continues to confront relentless issues due to the pandemic, including ongoing blood drive cancellations and staffing limitations. Adding to the concern is the surge of COVID-19 cases. The Red Cross has experienced low donor turnout ever since the delta variant began spreading in August, and that trend continues as the Omicron variant takes over.” The American Red Cross is facing a national blood crisis – its worst blood shortage in over a decade, posing a concerning risk to patient care.

In an effort to help save lives, Cultivate Behavioral Health & Education teamed up with the Bee Cave Police Department to host a blood drive at their Multipurpose Space on March 2, 2022. We were excited to have a total of 31 donors (10 of which were first-time donors) and potentially helped save 93 lives.

The Red Cross asks everyone to help ensure people receive the care they need. Make an appointment to give blood or platelets as soon as possible by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
