FREEPORT - Rock River Valley Blood Center continues to deal with a blood shortage, leading to another urgent call for donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give. Donor traffic is down approximately 13 percent over the last four weeks, resulting in about 350 fewer donations than expected. Cold and flu season has hit this area hard and is impacting the ability of donors to donate.
