Red Cross in High Demand for Blood Donations

The American Red Cross says they are in high need of blood donors right now. 

Michelle McCormick, executive director of the Blue Ridge Chapter of the Red Cross, says when natural disasters like hurricanes hit, they often see a spike in demand.

She say it's also more important to donate before a storm fully hits so they have time to get the blood to people in need.

"We are having to cancel blood drives all throughout the east coast, especially those who were affected," McCormick said "So we are just asking people if you want to give, please give. If you don’t usually give, please give."
