South Bend Medical Foundation has urgent need for blood donors


Do you have O-type blood? The South Bend Medical Foundation needs you!

The need is urgent... Their blood bank is down to only a day's supply of both negative and positive O-type blood.

Because O is the universal donor, the South Bend Medical Foundation runs low on those types regularly. But if you are eligible to donate with any type of blood, DONATE!

Christina Tembo, the manager of blood donor recruitment at the South Bend Medical Foundation, says that only 35% of the population is eligible to donate, but, "only 5% is ever actually going to donate, however, 100% of us are going to expect to receive blood when they need it."

As incentive to donate blood, South Bend Medical Foundation is offering a 10-dollar gas gift card for donors at their Mishawaka and Downtown South Bend donor centers.
