American Red Cross asking for blood and platelet donations in face of shortage

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The American Red Cross says it's facing a blood shortage and is asking for blood and platelet donations.

The American Red Cross says there are times when blood and platelets are being distributed to hospitals at a rate faster than donations are being received.

The organization says it currently has less than a five-day blood supply on hand. There's a need for all blood types.

As a thank you to people who donate blood or platelets between July 25 and Aug. 31, The Red Cross will email donors a $5 Target eGiftCard.
