Blood donations are needed this holiday season to boost a supply that is approaching a historic low.
According to Terri Novotny with the American Red Cross, the blood supply is at the lowest level in 10-plus years. If more donors don’t come forward to give blood, some patients requiring a transfusion may not receive it.
Novotny tells KSAL News that no one can predict when an emergency situation could drain the supply that is on hand.
Schedule a donation appointment: rcblood.org/appt or call 800-733-2767.
