Two special blood drives in the area this week went well, but the New York-Penn District of the American Red Cross still needs donors.
Donna Van Strom, executive director of the Red Cross Chapter House, said at Frewsburg High School on Thursday 46 units of blood were collected -- "tremendous for this time of year (given) the fact that there are so many people in the community out with the flu.
The Red Cross Chapter House on East Fourth Street on Wednesday exceeded its usual total of 25 units for a single day. Van Strom said.
Officials said at the start of the week there was less than a day's supply available. To make an appointment to donate, call 1-800-272-4543.
