Red Cross wants blood donors for Labor Day

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

As you make plans for Labor Day weekend the Red Cross hopes you'll donate blood.

The blood donor center in Albany has seen a decrease in blood supply lately.

Workers say platelets and all types of blood are needed, but especially O-negative and positive.

"We forget and we just get involved with other things and just forget to think about that other person and to go out and donate blood to save another," said Rena Thomas.

The blood donor center on Dawson Road will be open on Labor Day from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m.
