Blood Bank of Delmarva is calling on our community to make appointments to donate blood and encourage others to donate. The blood supply is dangerously low with an overall 3-4 day supply, types O+ and O- at just a 1-day supply, and shortages of all types. Donors are urgently needed to help save lives.
Here is how you can help:
