The Northern Ohio Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross is urging all eligible blood donors to donate this Memorial Day weekend and ensure a strong blood supply for local patients.

The region is below minimum inventory standards on four of the eight blood types.

There is less than half a day’s supply of type O Negative, which is often used by hospitals in emergency situations when a person’s blood type is unknown.

For information on how to donate and where, visit the Red Cross Web site or

call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-448-3543).
