GREENWICH - The Red Cross says the severe winter weather has led to a low donor blood supply in southwestern Connecticut.
Red Cross officials say when supplies are low it's not unusual for Connecticut to import donor blood from other states. However, due to the extreme winter weather interfering with blood collections, they say other states don't have blood to spare.
To bring awareness to the Red Cross' urgent appeal for donor blood, Gov. Dannel Malloy rolled up his sleeve to donate today.
If you would like to donate, the Fairfield County Blood Donation Center in Norwalk is open tomorrow, Thursday and Saturday. In Greenwich, there will be a community blood drive on Feb. 12.
