American Red Cross Needs Blood Donors

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The American Red Cross says they are dealing with a blood shortage.  

More than 200 American Red Cross blood drives were canceled due to the inclement weather that hit the area in March.  

This resulted 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.  

The Red Cross is urging people to donate blood.  Click HERE to find a blood drive in your area.
