Blood supplies coast-to-coast are dangerously low due to a severe dip in donations leading up to and following the July 4th holiday, prompting a coordinated nationwide call for donors of blood all types. Current forecasting projects a shortfall of 1700 donations per week throughout our state-wide service area in July and greater shortfalls throughout the summer. These donations have the power to help thousands in need of blood transfusions. This critical need is occurring throughout the country. Patients in need tomorrow are relying on blood donors today to make sure blood is available for both critical and ongoing needs.
