United Blood Services Needs Your Blood!
Urgent call for Billings residents to give blood!United Blood Services opened up on a rare Friday to take blood donations. They are normally closed on Friday and for them to open up, even for, four hours on a day they are closed, there must be an urgent need.
United Blood Services at 1444 Grand Avenue in Billings needs the universal blood, 0+ and 0-.
United Blood Services Regional Donor Recruitment Director, Lesli Asay says,
the community of Billings has always been very good at responding to our need.
Blood type 0 is the most common blood and is used generally with infants and traumas. Lesli Asay goes on to say,
It’s typical to see an increase need for blood during the summer, but United Blood Services is down several units of type 0 blood.
This weekend you may call for an appointment at (406) 248-9168 or drop into 1444 Grand Avenue. United Blood Services is open Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday too, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
