There is currently an urgent shortage of blood in the Twin Ports area community.  People of all ages can need blood for various reasons.  It's needed for accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer.  It's been said that every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.  Various businesses and organizations have been hosting blood drives and there is another one coming up on Friday, November 13th.
