HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - This is your call to take action. Hospitals are experiencing a shortage of blood and need your help to care for patients.

In fact, it's an emergency. LifeSouth Community Blood Centers need donors to give blood. The group has less than a two-day supply of blood. That blood supports 14 hospitals in North Alabama.

The holiday season contributes to the small pool of available donors.

"All of that," said district community development coordinator Eric Franchos, "plus the recent severe storms have impacted the amount of people who have donated recently. And so we're in critical need of all blood types."

Research shows that 1 in 7 patients entering a hospital today will need blood.
