Blood Supply Affected by Winter Storm

After this week's winter storm, the Community Blood Center of St. Joseph says it's blood supply is holding steady... for the moment.

Community Blood Center Senior Manager Amy Baldwin says they typically like to maintain a three to five day supply. Without collections Thursday and limited donations today, they will dip below that amount and the need for blood will be critical.

Baldwin is encouraging repeat and first time donors to donate and help replenish their supply.
