Michigan Blood adding staff, extending hours to help rebuild blood supply

WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Michigan Blood is adding staff and hours to encourage donors to help boost the blood supply.

Severe winter weather nationwide has resulted in an urgent need for blood and platelet donations.

Michigan Blood typically collects 2,200 units per week to secure a safe blood supply for dozens of hospitals nationwide.

But as of Thursday night, just over 800 units had been collected.

Michigan Blood will hand out $10 Meijer gift cards to those who donate through January 17.
