American Red Cross issues emergency call for blood, platelet donors

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Between frigid temperatures and the government shutdown the American Red Cross is issuing an emergency call for blood and platelet donors.

Snow storms across the United States caused the American Red Cross to cancel blood drives which left more then 4,600 blood and platelet donations uncollected, according to the organization. The government shutdown also affected 4 percent of blood collections sponsored by military and local government agencies.
