Critical Appeal for Blood During National Blood Donor Month to Launch Jan. 6

01/02/2020 3:16 PM | Anonymous

On Monday, January 6, the American Red Cross will launch a critical need for blood types, especially type O, and platelet donations nationwide to help ensure blood products are available for ongoing patient care and emergencies.  Right now, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of type O blood.  This blood type is the most needed blood group by hospitals but is often the first to run out...given its ability to help so many patients.  With more winter weather inevitably on the way and a wide-spread outbreak of influenza in 39 states, the Red Cross encourages all eligible individuals to give help to those in need.  Go to www.redcrossblood.org to make an appointment.
