Red Cross has lowest blood supply for this time of the year in a decade

News

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – MARCH 27: A sign directs people to an American Red Cross blood drive held to help alleviate a blood supply shortage as a result of the coronavirus pandemic at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 27, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The speedway plans to hold a total of four blood drives due to a lack of donated blood and facilities large enough to collect it while observing social distancing guidelines. Many blood drives across the United States have been canceled as a result of the spread of the virus.

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The American Red Cross needs a lot of help right now.

There’s still a blood and platelet donor emergency shortage and as a result the Red Cross is hosting dozens of blood drives in the mid-Michigan area to try and get ahead before Thanksgiving and the holidays arrive.

Officials say the current blood supply is the lowest the Red Cross has seen this time of year in more than a decade.

Donors who answer the call to help between Nov. 1-Nov. 12 will be entered to win a trip for two to Hawaii, courtesy of Amazon Prime video.

Plus, those who come to donate between Nov. 1-Nov. 23 will receive a $10 amazon.com gift card.
