The local blood supply has been extremely low this summer and Houchin Community Blood Bank is asking the public for help.
Greg Gallion, Houchin's president and CEO, said Friday on "First Look with Scott Cox" that the blood bank has only a five-day supply of A- blood left.
"One person who donates will make a difference," Gallion said.
Simulcast host Scott Cox encouraged everyone to stop making excuses for not donating because it takes only 20 minutes to save a life.
If you want a chance to win a laptop or a Carnival Cruise vacation, donate twice by Sept. 30 and register at hcbb.com.
