'Type O' blood donors needed

United Blood Services is looking for donors to help a patient at Meritcare Hospital in Fargo who is using a significant amount of type O plasma.

Any type O donors who can come in to donate their plasma or red blood cells is asked to make an appointment in the next few days so United Blood Services can continue to supply what this and other patients need.

There must always be enough blood and blood products on the shelf for any emergency need. Type O blood is the universal blood type meaning that anyone can receive it, making it essential to always have it on hand.

Please help in the coming days at any of four blood centers in Fargo, Bismarck, Minot, ND or Aberdeen, SD or your local blood drive.
