SB Medical Foundation needs blood

Posted:

The South Bend Medical Foundation needs blood donors.

They say they're running low on the blood type O negative.  The end of the year is a time when donations usually drop.

The demand on the other hand, has actually increased.

"The holidays are a very difficult time for all local blood banks, there is a huge influx of people coming in from out of town, we have bad weather, there is often traffic accidents that result in trauma," says Christina Tembo of the South Bend Medical Foundation.

The donation of just one unit of blood can save up to 3 lives.
