A local blood drive was taking place in Charleston on Friday.
The American Red Cross held the drive at the Kanawha County Commission and Courthouse.
With blood supplies normally being lower over the summer months, organizers said donations are always needed.
"A lot of people could use it," donor Gary Beller said. "A lot of people in car wrecks and everything need a lot of blood, so I think it would be very helpful to donate."
The blood drive is scheduled to wrap up about 3 p.m. Friday.
