The American Red Cross has reissued an urgent call for blood and platelet donors after severe winter weather and seasonal flu has contributed to a spike in canceled donations. More than 16,500 blood and platelet donations have gone uncollected this month and the situation is considered critical. Right now, blood and platelets are being distributed to hospitals faster than they are coming in. A blood drive is being held at SUNY Oneonta Thursday, Friday and Monday between 12pm and 5pm.
