There is a huge demand for blood this winter season, with the American Red Cross saying the nation is facing one of its worst shortages in over a decade.
On Tuesday, February 1, Mohawk Valley Health System will host a blood drive at their St. Luke’s campus. Officials are asking anyone who is type O or AB negative to consider donating blood, according to Spectrum Local News.
The Red Cross is offering $10 Amazon gift cards as incentive to anyone who donates blood.
