Critical need for 'O negative' blood

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The need for O negative blood is critical right now to keep up with transfusions. O negative blood is universal which means it can go to any patient in our local hospitals regardless of their blood type.

Florida's Blood Centers is urging you to donate at any branch location or on the Big Red Bus.

To find the Big Red Bus or branch that's closest to you, call 1-888-9-DONATE (1-888-936-6283) or log onto the Florida Blood Center's Web site then click on the Big Red Bus icon.
