The recent polar vortex weather system resulted in frigid temperatures and a lot of snow in some areas of the country. That resulted in thousands of blood drive cancellations across the country. April Oppliger is the spokesperson with the American Red Cross – Nebraska – Southwest Iowa Region and she says they need help to replenish supplies now.
The Red Cross is especially in need of O-positive, O-negative, B-negative and A-negative blood types.
