The American Red Cross is after your blood

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT-TV) - The American Red Cross is low on blood and needs your help to give the gift of life!

A blood drive took place from one to six at the NEA Baptist Hospital in Jonesboro.

Their goal for today's drive was to collect forty units of blood.

Red Cross staff say one unit alone can save three lives!

Geneva Rosamond with the American Red Cross says the need never goes away, "There's always a shortage of blood and it's important for people to give because with all the disasters happening, some people can not donate money, but they can give blood."

The Red Cross will be visiting students tomorrow at Lake City High School.
