The Houchin Community Blood Bank is in dire need of blood donations after much of its A negative and O negative supply was used on Friday due to a couple accidents.

The blood bank said the blood was used for a person involved in a car accident and another person who suffered a serious head injury from a fall. The bank is asking people with those blood types to please donate by 2 p.m. today so the bank can replenish its supply.

Donors with other blood types are encouraged to donate on Tuesday at the Truxtun Avenue or Bolthouse Drive locations.

The bank will be closed Sunday and Monday due to the New Year's Day holiday. To donate or for more information, visit hcbb.org or call 616-2505.
