Red Cross repeats plea for more blood donors

The local American Red Cross still is facing a critical blood shortage and is appealing for donors, especially those whose blood type is O negative.

Donations to the American Red Cross Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region in May and June dropped to the lowest for those two months in more than a dozen years.

The region provides blood to 24 hospitals and needs 300 people to give blood and platelets each weekday to meet hospital demand. To donate blood, call 1-800-733-2767 or visit redcrossblood.org.
