“Memorial Blood Centers is calling for blood donations, as it faces a “critical challenge” keeping up its blood supply to meet the needs of area hospitals, according to a spokesman. Blood supply is so low, a spokesman says MBC was not able answer the call to help hospitals in southern states impacted by Hurricane Laura. MBC lost more than 50 percent of its blood donations when blood drives were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a release. MBC is in need of donors for all blood types and specialty donations of platelets. MBC is also accepting donations of convalescent plasma from patients who have recovered from COVID-19.”
Help us address this critical blood shortage by donating today!
