Red Cross issues emergency call for blood donations in New Jersey

The American Red Cross has issued an emergency call for blood and platelet donations for New Jersey.



The nonprofit relief organization said that blood donations have fallen short of hospital needs by 39,000 donations.



They say that the holiday weekend may have caused regular donors to postpone donations.



People looking to donate can visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
