Urgent need for blood drives to continue

By Caroline Rosacker

Donating blood is a vital way to help save lives. A single donation can provide different blood components that can help up to three different people. 

With the onset of recommended isolation measures due to coronavirus concerns, blood drive cancellations have grown at a concerning rate. As of March 18, approximately 4,500 Red Cross blood drives were cancelled across the country, resulting in roughly 150,000 fewer blood donations.
