110, that's how many pints of blood Lubbock hospitals need every day and right now United Blood Services says they can not supply that amount. Les Long with UBS says they are in critical need of donations. There is an urgent appeal for Type O Negative donations. This type of blood can be given to anyone.
Hospitals have exhausted all available supplies of this type of blood, and that's why UBS is making an appeal for donations. "We need for those people who do donate to come out one more time a year and it would keep us off this cycle back and forth on critical appeal," says Long.
If you would like to make a blood donation, call United Blood Services at (806) 741-1752.
