American Red Cross urgently needs blood and platelet donations

 

Donations needed to prevent a Winter Shortage

American Red CrossNashville, TN – The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood and platelet donations to prevent a shortage this winter.

Busy holiday schedules in November and December contributed to about 1,700 fewer blood drives held across the country compared to the two previous months, which has resulted in about 50,000 fewer donations and reduced the blood supply.
