Alabama Red Cross Appeals for Blood Donations

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -

The Alabama chapter of the American Red Cross has issued an emergency appeal for blood donations after fewer than expected donations last month.

"Many fewer donors than expected gave blood and platelets through the American Red Cross during June and the first week of July," the organization says in a released memo. "Donations through the Red Cross were down approximately 10 percent in June, resulting in about 50,000 fewer donations than expected."

All blood types are needed but especially O negative, A negative and B negative.

Donors can call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org to schedule a blood donation appointment. The following is a list of Alabama blood drive:
