Blood Needed

posted Mar 23, 2017, 6:48 AM by Ryan Quinn
The American Red Cross is issuing a call for type O negative and AB blood donors to make an appointment to give after severe winter weather in some parts of the country caused about 250 Red Cross blood drives to cancel in March, resulting in more than 8,500 uncollected blood donations. 

Type O negative blood and type AB plasma are two of the most in-demand blood products by hospitals. 

Those who give can help patients locally or across the country as the Red Cross has the ability to move blood products where and when they are needed most.  

Eligible donors can learn more, find a donation opportunity and schedule an appointment by visiting or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
