An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But occasionally we need the doctor, and if more serious we might need a blood transfusion. Are you willing to help?
There is a Critical need for O-positive, A-positive, O-negative and A-negative blood throughout the Upper Peninsula
The need is high is Marquette, Escanaba, Hancock and Sault Ste. Marie.
If you haven’t donated in the last 8 weeks, please take the time to give the “gift of life.” Did you
know that just 1 pint of your blood can help save 3 lives? All blood donated at the UP Regional
Blood Center stays in the UP.
