The Red Cross announced that the organization continues to experience an emergency blood and platelet shortage that has caused the blood supply to drop to the lowest level post-summer in at least six years.

Additionally, the Red Cross said that the number of blood donors decreased by about 10% as the summer came to an end.

Although donations have dipped, the demand for blood from hospitals remains high, the organization said. Because of this, the Red Cross is urging the public to become a donor.

The Red Cross needs of all blood types, especially type O, as well as platelet donors.

The Red Cross will be holding various donation events from Oct. 16 to the 31 across the tri-state area.
