There is a critical blood shortage throughout the Tulsa area and the Green Country division of the American Red Cross desperately needs your help by volunteering to donate blood.

The Red Cross has a real shortage of blood types "O" and "r-h negative," but all types are needed.

Sunday, Red Cross officials said they've had a great response, but still need more help.

If you would like more information, call 831-1151.

The Red Cross has two offices in Tulsa located at 11th Street and Highway 169 and at 7717 South Memorial Drive. They're open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, and Sundays from 12 PM to 4PM.

KOTV Channel 6 is holding a blood drive at our studios located at 302 South Frankfort Avenue in downtown Tulsa next wednesday from 7:00 AM to 1:30 PM. Two mobile units from the Tulsa Red Cross will set up right beside the KOTV Studios.
