Red Cross ask for blood donors as supply dips to lowest level in a decade

Local News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — The American Red Cross needs blood.

The agency said Tuesday its current blood supply was the lowest the Red Cross has seen this time of year in more than a decade.

To overcome the “ongoing emergency blood and platelet shortage,” the Red Cross said it needed donors to continue to make and keep appointments now and in the weeks ahead.

At least 10,000 more donations are needed each week in the coming weeks to meet patient needs, the Red Cross said.

Donors can schedule an appointment now by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
