WDRB employees respond to urgent call from Red Cross for blood donations

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Red Cross recently issued an urgent call for blood, and WDRB is doing its part to help Louisville during a critical blood shortage.

Employees are donating blood at our station today. Officials say donations drop during the busy holiday season.

Nationally, the organization is 50,000 units short of what it needs to be.

"First time donors are encouraged," said Ashley Jodry with the American Red Cross. "Only about 30 percent of the population is eligible to give. So we definitely need the younger generations to step up and help us out."
