The Blood Connection’s (TBC) says their local blood supply is low because the wintry weather has caused consecutive days of low donor turnout. In order to best serve local hospital patients who rely on blood donors, TBC says they need a stable blood supply.
In addition, winter weather is wreaking havoc in many communities across the country. Thousands of people are being impacted in states like Texas and Louisiana where some blood centers have had to completely shut down, creating a critical need for blood donations. Despite the winter weather, patients in those impacted hospitals are still in great need of blood products, and blood donors in this community can become a lifeline for them.
The Blood Connection has received several pleas for help from blood centers in Texas, who are struggling to meet their local hospitals’ needs because of the continued winter weather. TBC wants to be in a position to help if more donations start to come in.
As a community blood center, The Blood Connection says they will always prioritize local hospitals’ needs first, but in a time like this, blood donors are needed everywhere to help neighbors in other regions get through a hard time. Blood donors are urged to make an appointment and donate blood as soon as possible.
