Red Cross officials have confirmed the total number of pints collected in the annual Radio Park Blood Bowl on Tuesday. Spokesman Dan Fox says 79 pints were collected during the event. With each pint able to help as many as three patients, the impact from Tuesday’s Blood Bowl may reach more than 230 people. The event comes each year at a critical time for Red Cross-managed blood supplies in our region. The cold weather and repeated storm system we typically see this time of year impact blood drives. So far this year, the agency has cancelled 450 scheduled blood drives due to weather. Across the country that’s created a shortfall of nearly 14-thousand blood and platelet donations.
