American Red Cross is holding a number of blood drives after winter weather forced cancellation of hundreds of Red Cross blood drives in 30 states, causing more than 15,000 blood and platelet donations to go uncollected including more than 700 in the local River Valley Blood Services Region which includes Central Kentucky and Southern Indiana. COVID-19 survivors are especially needed to address a convalescent plasma shortage. Blood from these individuals is further tested to see if it may have antibodies that could help patients currently battling the virus. Blood donation appointments can be made by downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-733-2767.
