The Red Cross says levels for O-negative and B-negative blood types are dangerously low, and blood collection officials are asking for your help.

Lena Thomas with the Red Cross Blood Donation Center on Dawson Road says the holiday season and cold weather has increased the demand for O and B-negative. Thomas is asking anyone with those blood types to donate immediately.
