Red Cross calling for blood donations after shortage

The American Red Cross says it is running out of blood and desperately needs more donations now.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – The American Red Cross says it is running out of blood and desperately needs more donations now.

The Red Cross collected 21,000 fewer donations than what hospitals need over the last couple months.

It says a drop in donations along with Hurricane Michael and Florence cleaned out supplies.

Now, the holidays are here and donations are typically down this time of year.

The Red Cross of Indiana is trying to get volunteers to host more than 120 blood drives over the next three months.
