Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- United Blood Services desperately needs your help. It's calling on the Las Vegas community for blood donations.
While many valley residents generously donated blood earlier in the year, the blood center has been experiencing a shortage because donors must wait at least eight weeks before giving blood again.
The demand has outpaced by 400 pints of blood.
United Blood Services has less than a one-day supply of blood types O positive and O negative.
The non-profit is asking members of the community to visit any of its convenient blood collection centers to support its life-saving mission.
