GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Blood supply already faces challenges due to the pandemic, but the traditional holiday slump adds even more level of concern.

Due to these factors, the American Red Cross is urging anyone who is eligible to give blood, platelets, and plasma to ensure shelves are fully stocked when patients need it most.

Tiffany Page, Executive Director of the American Red Cross' West Michigan Chapter, joined Fox 17 live to discuss the opportunities in further detail.
