The American Red Cross says blood supplies remain critically low, as is common in the summer.

The Red Cross is offering two chances to give in the coming days in Eastern Jackson County, both in Lee’s Summit.

Today, there’s a blood drive from 7 a.m. to noon at the Missouri Department of Transportation offices at 600 N.E. Colbern Road.

On Saturday, there’s a drive from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Spartan Athletics, 725 N.W. Commerce Drive.
