The American Red Cross is asking the public to donate blood sometime this summer, and hopefully soon.  The American Red Cross has issued an appeal to all blood types, saying there is an urgent need for all blood typed, especially O negative, A negative and B negative.

Dan Fox, Communications Manager with the American Red Cross, tells The Big Z they don’t want to see their blood supplies fall to the critical stage.

Each donation can be divided into three parts – blood, platelets, and plasma.  For a full list of upcoming drives in Madison and Macoupin counties, click on the link below:
