The Erie Community Blood Bank is banking on your help. According to the blood bank, blood supply levels are plummeting and causing a blood shortage. Millions of Americans have been celebrating this holiday season, but that may be troublesome. With the winter weather causing more accidents and people needing blood, Dan Desroschers says giving blood is essential. The community blood bank is in need of all types of blood in the height of the shortage. In addition, Christmas day and New Year's Day both are falling mid-week, that means less days to give. Desroschers says don't hesitate, donate and time is of the essence. People giving blood today say they donate in hopes that other people will give back incase they too need it.
