TEXOMA---The Texoma Regional Blood Center needs your blood. Workers say they're running low on some blood types.

Right now, they say they're in critical need of O negative and they also need A negative, B negative and AB negative.

They say many of the people they rely on for donations are out of town for the summer, including college and high school students.

If you'd like to donate, you can go to Texoma Regional Blood Center located at 3911 North Texoma Parkway (open Mon.-Fri. 8-5:30 and Sat. 9-1) or to one of their drives being held at various locations throughout the week.

Here are the locations and time of those drives:

Wednesday: Sherman Wal-Mart from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; also B&B Foods in Leonard from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Thursday – Walgreen's in Sherman from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; also Hot Summer Nights from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Friday – American Bank in Pottsboro from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Oklahoma Blood Institute is reporting that they're okay on their blood supply, but that they can always use any negative blood types.
