Red Cross Putting Out Urgent Call For Blood Donors

The American Red Cross is facing a looming blood shortage as donations tend to slide in the summer. Todd Kulman of the Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region says the shortfall is significant enough that they could experience an emergency situation in the coming weeks.


Kulman says they're not picky when it comes to blood types.


There are 11 upcoming blood drives in St. Joseph, South Haven, Hartford, Decatur, Sawyer, Niles, Paw Paw, Bloomingdale and Buchanan. The first is Thursday at The Chapel on Washington Avenue south of St. Joseph from noon to 5:45 pm. To make an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or log on to
