Blood donors sought

The American Red Cross has a critical need for donors of all blood types to give blood to support cancer, organ transplant and other patients. Type O blood donors are especially needed right now. Having enough type O blood on the shelves is important for ongoing patient care and emergencies. Type O positive is the most transfused blood type and can be transfused to Rh-positive patients of any blood type. Type O negative is the universal blood type and what emergency room personnel reach for when there is no time to determine the blood type of patients in the most serious situations.
