KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- After a dip in blood donations this summer -- the American Red Cross is setting up blood donation sites across the metro this month.

According to the organization -- blood supplies were already low going into the summer.

The Red Cross says this push for donations during National Preparedness Month will help it increase blood supplies for the winter months.

Cold weather and snow also slow donations, so the Red Cross says it is hoping people will come out to the donation sites to help others in their time of need.
