ROANOKE, Va. -

Monday your Hometown News Leader is hosting a blood drive at the digital broadcast center.

The American Red Cross put out an emergency call for blood and platelet donations.

There is a 10 percent shortage right now, because the demand for blood goes up during the summer travel season.

The Red Cross needs about 100 donors to step forward and give blood.

All types are needed, but especially O-negative.

You can donate with WDBJ7 between 12:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday.
