The American Red Cross is looking for ways to bolster the area’s blood supply to avoid a shortage the rest of the summer.
Several snowstorms have led to a decrease in collected blood donations this winter, according to the American Red Cross of Massachusetts.
The American Red Cross is appealing for blood donations, saying its supply has reached emergency levels after 50,000 fewer donations than expected so far this month.
Blood donations typically fall in the summer. The American Red Cross is embarking on a new campaign to restock supplies. Donna Morrisey with the American Red Cross speaks with WBZ’s Jon Maclean about the campaign.
