Red Cross: Blood & Platelet Donors Needed

The American Red Cross is facing a blood and platelet shortage and is asking all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give.

Donations are currently down about 8% and if the number of donors continue to decline -- the Red Cross could experience an emergency situation in the coming weeks.

Simply call 1-800 RED CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment.

A mobile blood drive will be set up tomorrow from 10 AM to 3:30 PM at the Lord of Live Lutheran Church, located at 640 North Columbia Center Boulevard in Kennewick.
