As the Tri-Cities got pummeled with snow, the American Red Cross in Grand Island felt the aftermath.

The collection manager says that winter months already bring in fewer donors. But with snow on top of it, she expected only half of her appointments to show up today.

Though for one woman, a little snow wasn't going to stop her. And she thinks it shouldn't stop other people either.

"We live in Nebraska. It snows in Nebraska. It's not anything new. So you should come anyways. The roads weren't that bad either. I guess I didn't feel like they were. Just be careful. Drive slowly. And come keep your appointment," said Kinsey Dutoit, a blood donor.

She says that people that need the blood donations are in a much worse spot than we are. So driving in the snow was not going to stop her.

Nebraska's blood donation goal for February is 13,000. They need close to 3,000 more donations to meet the 13,000 mark.
