AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Shepeard Blood Center says the summer months usually hit them hard in their reserves, and they're in need of blood.

The center is struggling to get donors, according to a press release.

Shepeard is in urgent need of all blood types, but especially O Positive, AB Negative, A Negative, B Negative, and B Positive blood donors.

If you are an O Negative blood donor, you are always needed as this blood type is the universal donor.
