BloodSource issued a public appeal due to a critical blood shortage. They currently have an unprecedented need for blood of all types. Current forecasting projects a 4,700 blood pints shortfall in July and greater shortfalls throughout the summer.
During this shortage, BloodSource encourages the community to donate and help ensure blood is available for both critical and ongoing needs.
More information and locations to donate can be found on the BloodSource website.
Here’s how to help:
1. Make your appointment NOW to donate blood.
If you are currently a BloodSource component donor – platelets and/or plasma – your donations are very important. Please continue to make and keep your appointments. BloodSource staff will let you know what’s most important for you to donate on any given day.
