HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The American Red Cross asked for donations as the blood supply is at the lowest post-summer level in the last six years.

They are in need of all blood types, but especially type O, and they encourage everyone able to make an appointment to donate as soon as possible.

Appointments can be made by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting their website, or calling 1-800-733-2767.

Everyone who donates in the month of October will receive an email link to claim a free Zaxby’s chicken sandwich or get a $5 e-gift card of their choice. Plus, starting October 11 donors receive a bonus $5 e-gift card of their choice through the end of the month.
