Over the last four years, blood donation in Minnesota and around the country have fallen off gradually. Right now there is an extraordinary need for the blood types A, B, and O, with Red Cross branding it the “Missing Letters Campaign”. Red Cross Minnesota Spokeswoman Sue Thesenga (THU-sing-guh)…
The Red Cross has seen the number of new donors decline by about 80,000 a year. With only 38 percent of the population eligible to give blood, and just 10 percent of those actually giving blood yearly, that's only 3 percent of the population. For upcoming blood drives go to Fergus Falls Red Cross on facebook.
