Blood donors needed due to winter storm

FARGO – United Blood Services here is requesting help from the community to donate blood.

Winter storms over the weekend forced the cancellation of several blood drives in the region and donors were unable to get to donation sites Monday.

Hospital blood needs continue to be met, but donors are needed to build up the local supply in anticipation of any emergencies or unforeseen usage in the near future.

Donors in the Fargo-Moorhead area can donate at the blood center at 3231 11th St. S., Fargo, or participate in the annual North Dakota State University Bison Athletics blood drive today here at the Bison Sports Arena.

To make an appointment, contact UBS at (701) 293-9453 or visit www.unitedblood services.org.
