United Blood Services Appeals for Negative Blood

Well, we made it through the holiday season, but already today dozens of patients are waiting for life saving transfusions. That's because United Blood Services says it is again faced with a shortage. Part of the problem is while most of us were ringing in the new year with a long holiday weekend... The shelves at UBS were running dry. So now, all units are very low. In particular, there is a real need for negative blood types.

"Currently we are having trouble filing the negatives, AB-, O-, B-, A-, but we are in need of all blood types because we are not able to fill orders," says Les Long at United Blood Services. All donors will receive a free t-shirt. If you can help, please stop by UBS at 48th and University. They will be open until 6:00 p.m. tonight or call 741-1752 to make an appointment.
