Red Cross: Need for blood donations rises as summer winds down

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – As summer winds down the American Red Cross is reminding people that the need for blood donations is still high.

They say people get caught up in back-to-school activities and blood donations drop off. There are a number of blood drives scheduled in mid-Michigan over the next few weeks. All donors are encouraged to give but there is a need for types AB, O negative, B negative and A negative blood.

If you would like to donate blood you can call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information.
