Shaky economy keeps blood donations scarcePosted: Updated:
With the American economy on shaky ground, blood donations seem to be plummeting as well.
Some blood donation sites across Hudson Valley were completely empty Monday afternoon.
Congers resident Mary Colandrea has been donating blood for 50 years and was happy to help those that desperately need blood.
?There is always a shortage and it?s my duty as an American to do this,? she said.
