Nearly 4,500 blood drives have been canceled across the country due to coronavirus concerns, resulting in about 150,000 fewer blood donations. The nation now faces a severe blood shortage. While people may be hesitant to come out for a blood drive, donating blood is safe. The Red Cross has added precautions to protect donors and staff. Donation appointments can be made by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 800-733-2767.
