JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - After a shortfall in blood donations in May, the American Red Cross urges people to roll up their sleeves.

According to a press release, the Red Cross collected just over 26,000 fewer blood donations to meet patients’ needs in May.

With June 14 being World Blood Donor Day, the Red Cross says now is the perfect time to donate blood.
