(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.
