American Red Cross Blood Supply Critically Low, Chilhowee Location For Blood Donations Jan. 24

The American Red Cross blood supply has fallen to critically low levels, and we now face an emergency blood shortage. In recent weeks, we’ve had to limit our distributions of some of the most transfused blood types to hospitals. We need donors now, and in the weeks ahead, to help rebuild the blood supply.

Blood shortages are an ongoing issue nationwide – you’ve certainly seen us make this plea for help in the past. One shocking statistic has contributed to this problem: Over the last 20 years, the number of people donating blood to the Red Cross has fallen by about 40%. We need to reverse this trend.

An upcoming location in Johnson County for donations will be the Chilhowee RV School, Jan. 24 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. The school is located at 101 SW 2 Hwy.
