The severe winter storms that dumped snow on the east coast this last weekend has led to an emergency need for blood donors. Since January 1, the American Red Cross has had to cancel more than 300 blood drives in 20 states. Red Cross officials are hoping that by letting people know about the need thay will come out in larger numbers to donate blood.
