Emergency Need to Fill Critically Low Blood Supply

Following the polar blast last week, Michigan is facing a critically low blood supply.

If you can give blood, now is the time to do it.

Versiti Blood Center of Michigan, formally Michigan Blood, is issuing an emergency appeal for all blood types.

The recent winter blast forced the cancelation of more than 80 community blood drives across the state.

That means the loss of more than 3,000 life-saving blood donations.

For every pint of blood donated, up to three lives can be saved.
