United Blood Services Wednesday issued an emergency appeal for blood donations. All types are needed.

A spokesman said UBS is unable to meet the needs of the hospitals it serves due to unusual demand.

Eligible donors may give at United Blood Services in Meridian at 1115 23rd Avenue Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday.
