Winter weather means there’s a shortage in blood donations

Posted by wlpo on March 16, 2015

Thanks to a brutal February and early March in some places, the American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donors.

Storms across the country early this month forced over 200 blood drives to be cancelled. The weather should be fine to donate blood this week in Peru, Mendota, Streator and Serena.

The Red Cross is hosting a blood drive tomorrow at the Peru Red Cross office from noon until 5:30. On Thursday there’s a blood drive from 8:45 until 1 at the Streator City Hall. On Friday you can donate from 10 until 3 at either the Mendota Community Hospital or Serena High School.

All blood types are needed for donations.
