A Different Kind of Disaster

As was mentioned last week, the Red Cross as the Nation’s leading supplier of lifesaving blood is currently facing shortages of many blood types, especially Type O Negative. This is from a combination of increased demand for blood, and a decreased supply as people are out enjoying the summer. An additional appeal is now going out asking for the communities help in addressing this different kind of disaster by helping recruit donors.
