Red Cross Has Urgent Need for All Types of Blood

Winter storms in March forced the cancellation of more than 200 Red Cross blood drives, resulting in nearly 7,000 uncollected blood and platelet donations. This shortfall follows more than 26,400 uncollected blood and platelet donations in February due to severe weather across 27 states.
Regardless of the weather, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood –from cancer patients to accident victims to premature babies with complications.
