Blood Bank of Delmarva Hosting 7-Day Drive Amid Critical Shortage

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- The Blood Bank of Delmarva is encouraging more people to come out and donate as it faces a critical shortage.

They're holding seven major blood drives in the hopes of replenishing their reserves. Right now, the Blood Bank says they only have a two-day reserve of O-positive, O-negative and platelets, nowhere near sufficient enough to supply all of the region's hospitals.

The first blood drive took place Tuesday at Long Neck United Methodist Church. Six other drives will take place in the following days throughout Dorchester and Sussex Counties. 

For more information on where you can go to donate, head over to the Blood Bank's website
