CBB Experiencing Moderate Shortage

The Community Blood Bank is still experiencing a moderate blood shortage that has lingered for most of August. Labor Day Weekend is traditionally one of the three worst weekends of the year (July 4th is first and Memorial Day is second), and AAA is predicting a 10 percent increase in holiday travel.

The Community Blood Bank will be taking blood donors this Saturday morning at Union Square in Bradford from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

"Labor Day is always tough for us," Says Dan Desrochers Director of Marketing at the Community Blood Bank. "People enjoy the last bit of summer and usually delay giving blood."

The Community Blood Bank is the exclusive supplier of blood products to all the hospitals in Erie, Mc Kean, Warren, Elk and Potter counties, and now supplies Tioga County at over 50 percent. The CBB supplies 98 percent of all blood used in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, & Allegany Counties in WNY. Only blood donated with the Community Blood Bank will alleviate the shortage in these counties and will help patients at local hospitals.
