Rotary Clubs of Wilmington asking the community to respond to blood supply shortage

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The American Red Cross has an emergency need for lifesaving blood amid the ongoing severe blood shortage. The Rotary clubs of Wilmington & the Red Cross needs your help July 28.

According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. Right now, there is a shortage of all blood types especially “Type O.”

For many patients in hospitals awaiting surgeries and transplants, battling cancer or recovering from traumatic accidents, help can’t wait.

More donors are needed now to ensure enough blood is on the shelves when people need it most.

The blood drive will be at Independence Mall in the JCPenney wing from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
