Emergency Call for Blood Donations

Severe winter weather since the New Year has forced the cancellation of more than 300 blood drives across 20 states.

That means more than 9,500 donations have gone uncollected, stressing an already low winter supply. As a result the Red Cross is putting out an emergency call for blood donations.

If you are at least 17, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health you may be eligible to donate. For more info on how to donate you can go to redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
