The American Red Cross is appealing to the public to donate their blood, especially types O positive and O negative, because of a dwindling supply.
The Western Lake Erie Region of the Red Cross, which serves northwest Ohio and Monroe County, has less than a one-day supply of blood types O positive and O negative.
To schedule an appointment to donate blood, call 419-539-1009.
