American Red Cross sees drop in blood and platelet donations

The American Red Cross says they're desperate for blood and platelet donors to help with the winter blood shortage.

Organizers say the severe winter weather has had an impact on blood donations with more than 200 blood drives forced to cancel causing more than 6,500 blood and platelet donations to go uncollected. 

Donations are needed to help patients continue to receive lifesaving treatments.
