Red Cross in need of blood story image

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The American Red Cross needs you to roll up your sleeve and donate.

The Red Cross needs donors to help prevent an emergency blood shortage following the 4th of July holiday.

They need platelet donors and blood donors of all types, especially those with type o-negative, b-negative, and a-negative.

Summer can be a tough time to collect enough blood, but blood doesn't take a break, even for summer.
