News 4 and the American Red Cross of Western and Central New York thank you for a successful Blood Saves Lives telethon.

A total of 68 people called in to make an appointment to donate blood, which far exceeded our goal.

You can always schedule an appointment online.

Right now, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of both O negative and O positive blood types.

A whole blood donation appointment will take approximately one hour from start to finish, but the donation itself only takes about 8-10 minutes.
