American Red Cross in critical need of Type O blood

By  | 

(WJRT) - (5/15/19) - The American Red Cross is asking for your help.

It says its Type O blood supply is critically low and more donors are needed right away.

Right now, the Red Cross says it has less than a two-day supply for emergency rooms.

That is only six units of blood for every 100,000 people when the typical amount sits around 14 units.

The American Red Cross is offering a special gift as a thank you to donors who come in now through June 10th.

All eligible donors will receive a $5 Amazon gift card.
