The American Red Cross is suspending mobile collection operations out of the Petoskey office.

The decision will also mean approximately 50 Red Cross jobs will be cut in that office.

In a news release a Red Cross spokesman said the move to shut down mobile collections in the Petoskey office will not affect the availability of Red Cross blood products in Michigan.

Mobile blood drives and platelet collection will continue at all other locations in the Great Lakes Region, including the mid-Michigan area.
