Red Cross Summer Blood Drive Appeal

The Red Cross of Central Maryland is making an urgent appeal for blood donations. Officials say the supply of all blood types has dropped to crisis levels and may not meet the needs of local hospitals. Only a few hours supply for type O-negative blood is currently on hand and a day’s supply of A, B and O-positive is available. Anyone wishing to donate can call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE to schedule a convenient appointment.
