ST. LOUIS -The American Red Cross hosts its 5th annual Lifesaver Blood Drives this weekend.
This year's drives come as the red cross faces a critical blood shortage. Blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in.
There are eight blood drive locations available Friday, August 2 from 2:00 - 7:00 p.m. in Missouri and Illinois.
