We need donations for all blood types — Red Cross

Eligible donors with type AB blood are especially needed to donate platelets or plasma.

Almost 100 blood drives were canceled last month alone, due to severe weather.

The Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donations during the winter season and is urging all eligible donors to donate at an upcoming blood drive in Rockport, at the Masonic Hall on January 13. "We encourage donors to invite a family member or friend to donate with them to help meet patient needs".

Red Cross encourages donors to help save a life in 2017 by giving blood.

"It's just the right thing to do, blood is always on the shortlist". Overall, the Red Cross has added almost 200 hours to blood donation centers and community blood drives across the country over the next few weeks. Upcoming blood drive sites are listed below for Waldo and Knox counties.

IVCC instructor and Red Cross volunteer Steve Swett said, "RapidPass is available which allows donors to log in the day of their appointment and fill out the health history questions".

"The Red Cross welcomes donors of all types of blood to help give the gift of life during this time of emergency need. This simple act can have a profound impact on another human being", Gehrig said in the release.

According to The American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the USA needs blood.

The American Red Cross says its supplies are running low and it could leave hospitals without blood products.
