ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA) — The American Red Cross has an emergency blood shortage after a difficult Fourth of July week.
Joe Zydlo, communications manager for Red Cross, said the humanitarian organization has less than a three-day supply for most blood types after fewer blood drives were offered in July.
Zydlo is asking for blood and platelet donors to replenish the blood supply.
Northwest Arkansas will host many blood drives in July in August in Farmington, Springdale, and Siloam Springs.
