Del. blood bank did not face shortages this year
Question of the Day
NEWARK, Del. (AP) — The Blood Bank of Delmarva says it received enough blood donations this year to avoid a shortage.
The organization says it received 75,030 blood donations from about 47,135 donors, which kept the blood supply stable over the year. It says more than 20,000 patients benefited from the donations.
Blood bank president and CEO Robert Travis said in a statement that National Blood Donor Month is set to begin January 1. He says that blood centers struggle to fill donation schedules during the winter months due to bad weather, illness and the holidays.
The Blood Bank of Delmarva has four donor centers in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and 30 mobile donation sites.
