JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

Blood donations are getting back to where they need to be, but the American Red Cross says they still need your help.  Winter storms and extremely cold weather forced them to cancel about 320 blood drives in 25 states.

The Red Cross is hosting several blood drives to re-build their supply including some in Johnson City.

The blood drives will be held:

Saturday, January 18                                  

American Red Cross, 818 Sunset Drive, Johnson City, 8:30 am to 1:00 pm                                

Monday, January 20                        

Carver Recreation Center 322 West Watauga Avenue, Johnson City, 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm. Hosted by Johnson City/Washington County NAACP.

Wednesday, January 22
