INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — The Indiana Blood Center is in desperate need of donors.

It's filed an emergency appeal to try and fix the problem.

The center says donations are at a critically low level heading into the Fourth of July holiday. It's due to lower than normal donations at the start of the summer season.

Right now, inventory is down to less than a one day supply of blood needed.

"We can't buy it," said Indiana Blood Center President Charles Miraglia. "We can't make it. Only if people come out and donate will we have the blood necessary to save lives every day."
