Albany - - The American Red Cross is extending its hours to meet a critical blood shortage and health care workers are asking for your help to boost the blood supply.
Lab workers at Palmyra Medical Centers say during the summer months, the need for blood becomes critical. Everyday, the Red Cross provides about 18 pints of blood to Palmyra. Each supply only lasts 45 days.
Employees say the hospital is well below inventory and they need you to help pull them through.
"In the summer time, you have people that are taking vacations and people that are out of pocket and they don't donate blood. However, in the summer time also, because people are out and they're traveling and you have car accidents so sometimes the supply goes down but the demand goes up. So it is critical and we are in a criticalized shortage," says Palmyra Lab Director Lisa Pinkston.
The Red Cross Blood Donor Center on Dawson Road will extend hours Friday and Saturday from 8am to 4pm.
They'll give away T-shirts and book bags as incentives. Also Friday, Palmyra will hold a blood drive at the hospital from 11am to 4pm.
