Red Cross In Urgent Need Of Blood Donations

NORFOLK- The American Red Cross is asking people to roll up their sleeve amidst an urgent blood shortage.

Red Cross Communications Manager Katie Marshall says donations of blood in Nebraska are down 3 percent over the last 11 weeks, and have dropped 8 percent across the country during the same time period. Marshall says the donations most coveted is from donors with type O negative blood.

Marshall: "That's the universal blood type. If we are talking about an emergency situation, we have patient coming in and we don't have time to type their blood, then we do know that the person can take Type O negative blood."

Marshall says other eligible donors include B negative, C negative, and A negative, and stresses all types of blood are needed at this time.
