Toledo fire Chief Mike Bell jokes with Shondalynn Price-Donelson as he gives blood at the Red Cross Donor Center, 3510 Executive Pkwy. He and police Chief Mike Navarre, on the cot next to him, donated blood together yesterday in response to a call the Red Cross put out earlier this week because it faces a critical shortage of blood, particularly O negative, O positive, and A negative. Those interested in donating blood should call the Red Cross at 1-800-448-3543.
