Collecting blood to send to Texas

DOTHAN, Al. (WTVY) LifeSouth in Dothan needs blood donations to help people in Texas.

Blood banks in Houston aren’t able to collect blood right now due to Hurricane Harvey.

Most needed is type O blood but all types are welcome.

LifeSouth sent a shipment yesterday.

Team leader Candice Johnson says,
"It is great to help and if that’s the way we can help then we want to surely do that."

Donors must be at least 17, or 16 with a parent's permission and weigh at least 110 pounds.
