Low Blood Supply Alert

July 6, 2015 — Low donor turnout during the Independence Day holiday weekend has resulted in a low blood supply, particularly for the Rh negative blood types O-, B-, and A-.

While all blood types are welcome and needed to replenish the supply daily, LifeShare Blood Centers is asking anyone with an Rh- blood type to make plans to give as soon as possible. Donation centers and public blood drives may be found at donor.lifeshare.org/donor/schedules/zip or by calling your nearest LifeShare Blood Center.
