Did you realize there is a low supply of blood in our area right now? It's a pretty scary thought to think if there were an accident and you or someone you loved needed blood. 

The supply is very low. According to the LifeShare Blood Center's website:

Recent reports reflect the patient use of blood supply has exceeded blood donations, which has resulted in a one day or less supply for nearly all blood types and components.
