Southern Tier American Red Cross in Desperate Need of Blood

Traci Taylor

I got a call yesterday from a Southern Tier Red Cross representative who told me they’re in desperate need of blood and asked if I could help by making a donation.

The representative I spoke with told me that blood and platelet levels are dangerously low and as a result, the Red Cross has issued an emergency request for donations. Because of the severe winter weather most of the United States experienced early on this month, 320 Red Cross blood drives had to be cancelled and that means that they’re more than 9,300 blood and platelet donations short.

As a blood donor, you can help save up to 18 lives per year. That’s because you can donate blood 6 times a year and each blood donation you make is processed into components (e.g., red blood cells, plasma, and platelets) that can save the lives of 3 different people with different needs. It’d be nice if blood could be manufactured, but it can’t- it has to come from donors, so maybe you’ll about scheduling an appointment to donate?

Take a peek at these blood drive dates and times and then call 1-800-Red Cross (800-722-2767) to schedule an appointment to give. Oh, and as an added incentive, if you donate in January, you’ll get a coupon for a free pound of Dunkin Donuts coffee!
