COVID-19 has left blood supplies dangerously low. Many of our nation’s blood centers are facing critical shortages of 1-2 day supplies or less and need donations as soon as possible. CAC Cares, our community service initiative, has organized a Virtual Blood Drive to support blood centers across the U.S. All of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive life-saving blood.
CAC recognizes that blood centers in the U.S. follow federal guidelines for blood donations that may in some cases be exclusionary to certain communities, including the LGBTQ+ community. We support the American Red Cross, Vitalant, OneBlood and others in their research to find eligibility criteria not based on sexual orientation. Those ineligible or unable to give blood at this time, for any reason, may pledge to donate blood at a later date or pledge a monetary donation instead.
So pledge your blood or financial donation today and help us reach our goal!
