Blood drives planned Monday

Staff report

The American Red Cross recently announced that it's facing a blood shortage and will offer opportunities to donate blood on Monday.

Anthony Tinin, Red Cross donor recruitment representative for the organization's Tennessee Valley Region, said two blood drives will be in Paducah: at Broadway United Methodist Church, 608 Broadway, from noon to 6 p.m., and Victory Assembly Worship Center, N. 1345 Friendship Road, from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. A drive will be held in Metropolis, Illinois, at First Baptist Church, 307 Massac Creek Road from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Tinin said summer is always a difficult time for blood collection with schools out for the summer - drastically lowering collections at campus drives - and regular donors away on vacations, and this summer has been no exception.

"We've seen 80,000 fewer blood donations this summer than what we expected, and so that's putting a dent in what we're able to do to meet those patients' needs, whether it's an accident victim, someone who has had surgery or a cancer patient that's needing the blood," Tinin said.

Additional information about blood donation can be found at redcrossblood.org.
