UNITED BLOOD SERVICES GOES ON APPEAL FOR O NEGATIVE BLOOD DONORS
United Blood Services is experiencing a dire shortage of O Negative blood and we need your help! If you are an O Neg donor, please come into one of donor centers today and help save the life of another person. O Negative is the universal blood and the only blood that can be given to a trauma patient or new babies when blood can’t be typed immediately. As always, we need all types of blood donors, however at this time we are in special need of our O negative donors. Please help us save the life of a trauma victim or a premature baby by donating today.
