Valdosta - A critical need for blood has sparked a week long campaign in one South Georgia town. 

It's Blood Donation Week in Valdosta. The blood bank is in desperate need of donations, especially from people with type O and B blood types. "We have a goal of about 328 units to collect during the summer months and we haven't hit that goal in several months now and we know during the summer it drops so we really need people to come in and keep the blood supply up," said Kathy Dallas. 

Blood Donation Week will wrap up Friday with a city-wide blood drive at the Senior Citizens Center on East Park Avenue. Red Cross workers hope to collect 33 pints of blood in that drive.
