The Community Blood Bank is hoping people will share their luck of the Irish before Saint Patrick’s Day by giving blood. This Thursday the first 75 donors who come to the blood bank will receive a pot of shamrocks generously donated by Joel’s Flower Shop. The blood supply has had a terrible winter and it’s still not back to 100% so we are hoping for a few extra donors Thursday to get through it.

The winter has been terrible unless you want to ski or tube, in which case it’s the best in years. The Community Blood Bank has teamed up with Mount Pleasant Ski Resort in Edinboro to make the most of it. The first 75 blood donors who come to the Community Blood Bank this Friday will receive either two 2-hour tubing passes or and adult all day lift ticket. The blood shortage inflicted by the severe winter is still a problem. The blood bank hopes to make up for all of the lost donors due to school closings and bad weather.

The Community Blood Bank has seen the blood supply drop to critical levels in the past 24 hours and the new storm forecast could spell real problems for area hospitals that are already concerned about dwindling supplies. Last week between 250 and 300 donations were lost due to cancelled blood drives. Those days simply cannot be made up as schedules are full months in advance. Only additional donors can pull the region out of this shortage. People with Type O & Type A blood are especially encouraged to come give blood.

The first 75 blood donors who come to the Community Blood Bank this Tuesday will receive a free 15 minute massage from the Erie Health SPA, located in West Ridge Plaza on 26th. The Community Blood Bank is holding a promotion called “Give from the Heart” this week sponsored by 1201 Kitchen, Play N Trade and Erie Health SPA. One lucky donor this week will win a gift basket valued at $350. The blood shortage inflicted by the extreme cold last week is still a problem. The blood bank hopes to make up for all of the lost donors due to school closings and bad weather.

The renewed cold weather has contributed to the return of a blood shortage that has the local blood supply dropping fast. Several major regional blood drives have been cancelled due to the weather. Officials at the Community Blood Bank are extending hours at their fixed site at 2646 Peach Street to give the public extra time to come in and give blood. The CBB will be open until 6:30pm Tuesday through Thursday this week (January 28-30th 2014).
