Emergency blood shortage, Red Cross urges Nebraskans to donate now

The American Red Cross issues an urgent call for help for all Nebraskans.



Nebraska spokesperson Samantha Pollard says there were 550 fewer blood drives organized over the last week and that equals about 15,000 fewer donations. The need is especially critical for type O blood donors. To schedule an appointment, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-Red Cross.
