Critical need for blood donations in Marauette

For the second time in a week, the U.P. Regional Blood Center, a service of Marquette General, is in critical need of all blood types. The need is for the Marquette area.

The blood denter staff says that, despite a number of blood donations after the call last week for help, the need is still high: for all blood types.

All blood donated at the UP Regional Blood Center stays in the U.P. A pint of blood can be donated every eight weeks.
