American Red Cross Issues Emergency Need For Blood

The American Red Cross has issued an emergency need for blood and platelet donations.

Severe winter weather across the United States along with an influenza outbreak impacting 36 states has caused the American Red Cross to Re-issue the emergency plea.

In the month of January more than 14 thousand fewer donations were collected due to snow, ice and cold temperatures.

All eligible donors are asked to help restock the supply.

Appointments can be scheduled by using the free Blood Donor App or visiting RedCrossBlood.org.
