Red Cross seeking blood donations

Posted: Updated:

CENTRAL ILLINOIS - The American Red Cross is encouraging eligible blood donors to donate at one of several blood drives during the month of August.

Officials say summer is a difficult time to collect enough blood donations, as some donors are less available to give due to travel and other seasonal activities.  Donors of all blood types are needed, especially individuals with blood types AB, O negative, A negative, and B negative.
