"This always makes winter a hard time, so we really need support from blood donors".

"Last week's massive winter storm had a significant impact on our blood supply with blood drives cancelled from SC to ME", said Chris Hrouda, president, Red Cross Blood Services.

Winter is usually a slow time for blood donors, because of the hectic holiday schedules and cold and flu season.

Illinois Valley Community College instructor and Red Cross volunteer Steve Swett said, "Donors can save up to 15 minutes during the donation process by registering through RapidPass to select their appointment time and fill out health history questions".

In general, blood providers such as Marsh Regional Blood Center, the region's largest supplier of blood, try to obtain at least 100 units of blood each day.

Many different types of patients, ranging from burn victims, to those suffering from Leukemia, may all require blood to help save their lives. "Of the 38 percent I just mentioned, only eight percent of them actually do donate regularly, so a fraction of the population is providing the blood for everybody else". Donors can help even more people by inviting a family member, friend or co-worker to donate too. That means more than 5,500 blood and platelet donations have gone uncollected.

Blood and platelets are often used for surgeries, emergency treatments and for cancer patients.

Donors with Type B negative or Type AB were still encouraged to donate, she said. Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact.
