Red Cross Trying To Boost Blood Supplies

The American Red Cross in Louisville has scheduled a series of blood drives this month to shore up supplies.Spokesperson Christie Wesley says the summer months are typically slow for donations.“During the summer regular donors and even people who would consider donating for the first time blood donation doesn’t seem to be the first thought during the summer. People who regularly schedule donations, they’re busy with family, experiencing the warm weather, going on vacation,” she said.Wesley says all blood types are welcome but there is a special need for RH negative, O negative, B negative types.    Some Upcoming Donation Opportunities (for more information, call 589-4450): Friday, July 16, 9am-2pm, Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness, 400 E.
