Blood supplies are extremely low across North Texas.

The American Red Cross and Carter BloodCare had to shut down for four days because of the weather last week; now they desperately need donations.

WFAA is teaming up with Carter BloodCare for a blood drive today from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at our Victory Park studios located at the corner of Olive and North Houston Streets in Dallas.

The site, adjacent to the American Airlines Center, is just a short walk from Victory Station on the DART Green Line.

Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with parental consent). Be sure to bring a photo ID, weigh at least 110 lbs. and be in good general health on the day of donating.

Be sure to eat and drink water before giving.
