Narrow window to boost blood and platelet collection

American Red Cross has a small window of opportunity to bolster the blood and platelet supply.

While some roads remain manageable, Red Cross is asking donors to give blood while they can. Donors are encouraged to call 1-800-GIVE LIFE for the latest information.

Red Cross will be asking residents of Oregon and Washington to step up and donate. Watch the Red Cross hotbox interview with Stephanie Stricklen on KGW.

Okay, there was one mistake, the shelf life of platelets is five days — not seven, so much for perfection.
