Due to dangerously cold temperatures in the Midwest, and cold/flu outbreaks throughout the U.S., blood centers are struggling to meet blood and platelet donation collection goals for patients and hospitals. These combined factors are a perfect storm resulting in an urgent need for more donors everywhere.
Rhode Island donors are needed, especially over the next two weeks, to help bring the U.S. blood supply up to safe levels. Please give if you are eligible and share this post to help spread the word.
ALL BLOOD TYPES ARE NEEDED, especially type O- and B-. Ultimately, all donations are heading to help someone else fighting for their lives! Little Rhody may be small, but we have big hearts and an amazing, giving community.
