Blood banks across Pennsylvania and the nation are running critically low on donations. The American Red Cross recently announced it is facing the worst blood shortage in over a decade. Blood donations are vital to the treatment of diseases like leukemia and kidney disease, as well as replacing blood loss from a major surgery or serious injury.

When hospitals run low on blood, it can lead to delays in treatment.

Fortunately, there is something many of us can do.

Approximately 24 employees at SCI Waymart gave blood on March 10 in the gym as part of Waymart’s #12MonthsofKindness campaign. Next up: planting trees for Earth Day in April.
