School is back in session soon and OneBlood is urging everyone to put donating blood on their back-to-school shopping list.
According to OneBlood, a transfusion is neede d about every two seconds nationwide. And spokeswoman Betty Roberts says locally, it’s been their summer of discontent.
“Traditionally in the summer blood donations decrease, and we’ve seen that,” said Roberts. “So we’re making every effort to do some ‘back to school’ blood drives to bring the level of the blood supply up to where it needs to be.”
