In these times, it’s easy to feel helpless and overwhelmed. We’re told to stay inside our homes as much as possible; essentially, by doing “nothing”, we’re supposed to be helping by keeping COVID numbers down. But what if you want to do more?

A recent article reveals a pandemic-related problem that most of us might never have thought of: The US blood supply is becoming dangerously low.

This is because most blood drives and pop-up donation centers haven’t been operating, due to pandemic-related restrictions. Now, many US hospitals are becoming concerned that they don’t have enough blood.

What can you do to help? If you’re able to, you can still go to a donation center to give blood.

Do an online search to check for one in your area, and be sure that you’re aware of any pandemic-related safety procedures for donating before you go.

Read on to learn more about the US blood supply shortage and what we can do about it.
