Carter BloodCare and the Red Cross are urging people to give blood over the next few days since last week’s winter weather caused the lowest blood supply in a decade. The local Red Cross stated that the amount of uncollected blood donations rose to nearly 28,000.

All types of blood are needed, but especially O-Negative, A-Negative and B-Negative.

The nearest Carter BloodCare location is at Preston Valley just south of Preston and LBJ.
