Red Cross blood drive underway at WesBanco Arena

Community

Across the nation, there’s a call for blood from the American Red Cross, as the organization faces an emergency blood shortage.

As of last week, they had less than a three-day supply of most blood types on hand.

Officials said the need for blood has reached desperate levels, but you have a chance to help.

On Monday, the 33rd annual Ohio Valley Media Blood Drive kicked off at Wesbanco Arena.

The drive started at 11:00 a.m. and runs through 5:30 p.m.

You do not have to make an appointment to donate, but it is encouraged to help you save time.
