American Red Cross issue appeal of blood donations

Posted by wlpo on February 9, 2011

Like schools, blood drives have been canceled recently because of wintry weather.  This has the blood supply extremely low.

The American Red Cross has issued an “appeal” for blood nationwide.  Sarah Stasik is director of the Illinois Valley Chapter of the Red Cross.

She says the Red Cross only declares an appeal when blood supplies are really low.

Stasik says her office’s weekly blood drives have stayed pretty consistent with 37 units of blood a week.  The weekly blood drives in Peru will move to every Tuesday starting February 22nd.
