Blood Donations needed at The American Red Cross

UNITED STATES - The American Red Cross is pleading for Americans to donate blood.

The organization says it collected about 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations over the holiday season.

The Red Cross says there also tends to be fewer donations in January because of the weather and seasonal illness.

The blood type in highest demand is Type O.

If you'd like to donate, call your local Red Cross to set up a time, or you can download the free Red Cross donor app.
