You can help give the gift of life. Local blood banks say there is a critical shortage of blood, specifically Type O blood, and they’re asking for donations.

A spokesperson for Bloodsource says the seasonal shortage is due to a variety of reasons, such as regular donors being busy with the new school year, late summer family vacations and other activities.

Bloodsource says donors of all blood types are always needed, because every two seconds someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion.
