LIFELINE Blood Services is in dire need of blood donors.
Marketing Manager Caitlyn Roach says numbers are down in ways that people who have worked at LIFELINE for decades have never seen.
Roach says LIFELINE needs a constant supply of donors to meet demand and is challenging first-time donors to step up and donate to help.
