Winter Weather Dents Blood Supply Donors Needed

Share this post

Amer. Red Cross
Last weeks snow and below zero temperatures forced hundreds of blood drives to be cancelled across some 25 states--including Indiana.  As a result, blood supplies have dropped significantly.  The American Red Cross is calling on Hoosiers to give as there is an especially urgent need for platelet donors and donors with types O, A negative and B blood.
