Delaware blood bank issues urgent appeal for donors

Only 2- day supply of O-positive and O-negative
CHRISTIANA, Delaware (WPVI) -- The Blood Bank of Delmarva has issued an urgent appeal for blood and platelet donors.

Right now, the blood bank, which serves 19 hospitals, only has 2-days of O-positive and negative on hand.

It needs about 350 donors a day to keep up a 7-day supply, but spring vacations and other factors have cut donations.

Anyone interested can donate at the blood bank's centers.
