SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News)- The American Red Cross is in desperate need of donors.

The organization says they collected 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations over the holidays than they need.

Right now they say they have less than a three-day supply of most blood types on hand.

The Red Cross is asking anyone who can donate, especially those with type O blood, to make an appointment soon.

Schedule an appointment to donate by using the free Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
