According to CBS 2, The American Red Cross has put out an emergency call for donors. The article states, “In the last two months there were 61,000 fewer donations given than expected. The Red Cross says in turn, that causes a big draw on the blood supply.” They are looking for blood and platelet donations of all kinds.

If you’re interested in giving blood, the American Red Cross website has everything you need to know, including upcoming blood drives in the local area. Here are some of the ones listed for Eastern Iowa for July and August:
