For Immediate Release
February 13, 2017
Because an available blood supply for patients in need relies on daily blood collections, BloodSource is asking eligible donors outside the impacted area to donate this week. Blood is perishable and needed by patients each and every day, including patients with serious medical conditions such as cancer, trauma, post-childbirth complications, blood diseases and more.
At this time, BloodSource anticipates an additional collection need of approximately 200 blood donations at other BloodSource Donor Centers and community blood drives, which can be found at bloodsource.org/locations.
To make a donation appointment, please visit bloodsource.org or call 866.822.5663.
