Blood donation clinic

The American Red Cross is making an urgent call for blood and platelet donations of all blood types to help combat a blood shortage, after severe winter weather caused January blood bank donations to drop by the thousands. via Winter Weather Creates Blood Shortages in the East | Time

This is true for the blood bank I work for. We are facing shortages in O- and O+ blood types. In my department at work we are charged with getting donors to come into a facility or a mobile collection unit. With illness and resetting of personal routines after the holidays its tough to get people in. This is a time of year you have to do a little more to help save lives.
