Blood Supply in Michigan at Critical Levels: Donations Needed

The blood supply in the Big Rapids region is so low, Spectrum Health says they are now at critical levels.

Spectrum Health says supply levels are low across the state, but especially in Mid-Michigan.

That’s where blood supply is 84% below normal supply levels.

They are now urging asking for blood donations through the rest of the month.

Starting Tuesday you can help restock the blood supply in the state.

You can also make an appointment to give blood with the Red Cross by calling 1-800-733-2767.
