Virginia Blood Services is in desperate need of blood donations. This time of year is always a struggle for donations, but the VBS says they have less than a days worth of blood in supply. When blood is not available, elective surgeries and other procedures are sometimes canceled to save blood for emergencies.

"Anybody who is around, please consider stopping in and giving blood. Virginia Blood Services is the sole provider of blood products to the hospitals in our community," said Ric Thomas.

If you are interested in donating blood, you can call Virginia Blood Services at 1-800-989-4438 or visit their office at 2401 Hydraulic Road.
