Delta Blood Bank has an emergency need for blood donors.
“Our inventory is greatly depleted right now,” said Annie Havens, Marketing Manager. “Dangerously so!”
Platelet donors and those with O negative, A negative and B positive blood types are especially needed. Every two seconds, someone needs blood. There is no substitute and the volunteer donor is the only way blood will be available for you or a loved one should the need arise.
“In the summer months, it becomes more difficult to get donors into our sites. Vacations take their toll on the blood supply and we hope to remind everyone that blood is needed 365 days a year,” Havens added.
Delta Blood Bank has served the Central Valley for over 60 years and provides blood to 11 local hospitals. For hours of operation and other donation opportunities, visit deltabloodbank.org or call (888) 94-BLOOD (25663) to make an appointment to donate.
Delta Blood Bank is the leading supplier of blood in San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Calaveras counties and the non-profit organization has been serving the needs of the communities in those counties for over 60 years
