GRAND STRAND, PEE DEE SC (WMBF) – The American Red Cross is issuing an emergency call for blood and platelet donations due to a severe winter blood shortage, according to a press release from the organization.

The American Red Cross received 37,000 fewer donations in November and December, and is now asking for the public’s assistance.

“Blood and platelet donations are critically needed in the coming days so that patients can continue to receive the lifesaving treatments they are counting on,” said Nick Gehrig, Communications Director, of American Red Cross Blood Services.
