Blood Assurance Asking the Public to Help

Blood Assurance’s blood collections have been significantly impacted by the winter storm, resulting in the closure of donation centers and cancellations of blood drives. The storm is occurring at a critical time, as the community blood center only has a one-day supply of most blood types on its shelves. Blood Assurance needs around 400 donors a day to supply local hospitals adequately.

Blood Assurance asks that donors monitor bloodassurance.org and the nonprofit’s social media channels for information on reopenings. When it is safe to reopen, community members need to schedule an appointment and donate this lifesaving fluid to replenish the supply.
