Memorial Blood Centers Issues Urgent Call for Blood Donors 

Amid the ongoing challenges of recruiting blood donors during the COVID-19 pandemic, local nonprofit Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) is facing a shortage of blood and platelet donations. More than 50% of the blood supply was lost when community blood drives were cancelled due to COVID-19 this year, and the supply remains low (less than a 3-day supply of all blood types).

The need for blood is constant, but the number of donors decreases during the summer. To replenish supplies for Twin Cities’ hospitals, trauma centers, and air ambulance bases, more healthy donors are needed at blood drives and donor centers in the coming weeks. Blood drives are resuming, with additional precautions at all donation sites.

Appointments can be made online at MBC.ORG or by calling 1-888-GIVE-BLD (888-448-3253).
