United Blood Services in Meridian has issued a plea for donations of O negative blood.
United Blood Services donor recruitment spokesperson Elizabeth Fair explained why the emergency appeal was issued Thursday.
"We have a patient in the hospital currently using o negative blood and we're in a crucial need for it," said Fair. "Right now we're asking that people in the surrounding areas come and donate, because it's hard to find O negative donors."
United Blood Service has moved down the street to a new location at 2512 11th Street.
