Red Cross seeks blood donorsRed Cross seeks blood donors







The recent spate of East Coast storms has canceled dozens of blood drives, leaving American Red Cross blood inventories at their "lowest levels in years," according to a news release from the Greater Alleghenies Blood Services Region.

The region has sent out an emergency appeal for blood and platelet donations from donors of all types, but especially O positive and A positive.

"We've not seen the usual post-Labor Day rebound in donor turnout," CEO John Hagins says in the release. "Without your help, patients are at risk for not receiving the transfusions they need."

The need is also great among other Red Cross regions and in other blood donation centers, the release says.

To find a blood drive or schedule an appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS, or visit www.redcrossblood.org.
