FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- There is a blood shortage across the nation for the most needed type of blood.

United Blood Services on Fargo is struggling to meet the demand for type "O" negative and urging the community to help.

Jennifer Bredahl is director of donor recruitment.

She says shelves are emptying and blood type "O" negative is becoming scarce.

Type "O" negative is a universal donor that can save anyone and is often used in emergencies.

United Blood Services is the sole supplier of blood to 93 hospitals across the midwest.
