Just a reminder to our listeners that the local blood supply is critically low on type O negative blood and requests that all eligible type O donors give as soon as possible. Currently there is less than a two-day supply available. Type O positive and B negative are also low and need replenishing. Donors will receive double points today and tomorrow. The LifeShare Blood Mobile will be parked at the Atlanta Wal-Mart from 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. today.

It takes at least 24 hours after someone gives blood before it is available for use. There is no manufactured substitute for human blood. It must come from blood donors.

For more information, call Karen at (903) 794-3173 or stop by LifeShare Blood Center on College Drive.
