From staff reports
Community Blood Drive is asking people in the Franklin area to roll up their sleeves this week as it is in critical need for types O- and O+ blood.
The blood bank is running on less than a one-day supply of blood.
There are two mobile drives on Friday in Franklin.
Franklin Community Medicine, located at 464 Allegheny Blvd., will collect blood from 1:30 to 4 p.m.
Anyone interested in donating blood may call (716) 450-0376 to schedule an appointment.
Donating blood takes between 30 and 45 minutes. In that time, donors fill out some paperwork, complete a short health screening, donate blood, and have a post-donation snack. Each donation can help save up to three lives of people.
