American Red Cross urging the public to give blood amidst blood shortage

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): American Red Cross officials are urging the public to give blood now to help overcome a severe winter blood shortage, which is being compounded by ongoing winter weather. Blood donations are currently being distributed to hospitals faster than they are coming in.

Since Dec. 1, about 300 blood drives across 27 states have been forced to cancel due to inclement winter weather, resulting in more than 10,500 blood and platelet donations going uncollected.

You can help ensure blood is available for patients by donating at some of the following upcoming blood donation opportunities listed below.

To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
