Cold and snowy April weather also slowed badly needed blood collections in the Northwoods.
American Red Cross blood representative Marc Sutton says they're holding some collections this month in the area....
"...we have one coming up on Thursday, May 10 at White Lake Community Center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Community Center is located across from the high school. Towards the end of the month, we have one at the Antigo Public Library at the 22nd of May, and that is in their meeting room..."
He says April found several drives being canceled due to weather so he says those are pints of blood they need to recover. Sutton says more information on upcoming drives can be found at redcrossblood. org
