Red Cross: Holiday Means Emergency Blood Shortage

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WHBC) – Donated blood is being distributed to hospitals faster than it is coming in.

The American Red Cross is calling that an “emergency blood shortage”.

They say it’s typical during and after the week where July 4th falls, so they ask that all eligible donors consider giving blood now.
