Blood donors sought to meet heavy demand

By NEMS Daily Journal

United Blood Services has announced an urgent appeal for blood donations.
All blood types are in demand to meet the needs of area hospitals.
The blood drive schedule is light during the summer as colleges and high schools are on breaks and business-based blood drives have seen smaller numbers as well.
Donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health.
