      The Red Cross held a blood drive at one of their newest locations Tuesday, the Oakland Library in Leesburg.

      Volunteers said during the summer their "regulars" are going on vacation leaving them with a shortage in blood. They also say they need more blood in the summer due to an increase in accidents.

      They hope to have at least 25 volunteers today.
