The American Red Cross is asking for your help in dealing with a looming shortage of the most needed blood types.

According to the Red Cross, they are facing an emergency shortage of O negative, B negative and A negative blood. The organization is also seeking platelet donors and type AB donors to make sure those shelves remain stocked, as well.

If you would like to give blood, the Red Cross will have a blood drive Friday at the McPherson Family YMCA from 2:30 p.m.until 6:15 p.m. Blood drives will also be held at Moundridge a week from today at the Pine Village Wellness Center and Inman on August 14 at St. Peters United Church of Christ.
