United Blood Services continues their urgent appeal for O negative donations.

They are currently unable to fill all hospital orders due to their lack of O negative blood, and need the community to help them supply the lifesaving liquid to those that need it.

To donate blood, you must be at least 16 years old, have valid photo identification, and be in good health.

Appointments to donate can be made at www.bloodhero.com, or by calling 741-1752. You can also drop by the Blood Donation Center at 48th Street and University Avenue.

Their hours are:

  • Monday – 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday – 12 p.m. until 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday – 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
