American Red Cross in Desperate Need of Blood Donations in West Virginia


American Red Cross

The American Red Cross has issued a warning to residents of West Virginia about an extreme slump in blood donations.

This is a result of the holiday weekend which resulted in fewer blood drives being organized. This followed up a June where there were much less blood donations than expected. In fact, there were around 24,000 less donations than were expected in June.

“This is a serious situation. We have less than a three-day supply of most blood types. We have less than a two-day supply of O, and keep in mind, blood is perishable, so you can’t keep this blood but for so long,” said Regina Boothe Bratton, external communications manager with the Red Cross.
