Blood shortage - Jan 10th, 2014 - Local
Weather conditions earlier this week prevented a lot of people for coming out to donate blood.
Michigan Blood officials are hoping more people will decided to donate to help make up for the earlier loss. The main donor center at Fuller Ave. NE, collected far less than normal and since blood donations are perishable, they can only be stored for a short time.
