South Bend Medical Foundation needs blood donations
MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- It is time to roll up those sleeves.
The South Bend Medical Foundation needs your blood.
ABC57 stopped by the foundation today and they are in need of all blood types.
Especially O-Positive and O-Negative.
There is also a chance for more people to donate blood. Those with new tattoos can now donate sooner.
"The blood bank decided that we could go to a four week deferral instead of a one year deferral," Colleen Hahn of the South Bend Medical Foundation said. "So, if you get it at a license place, you're good to donate four weeks after you get a tattoo."
The medical foundation is celebrating its 100th birthday.
Donors will be registered to win a $100 Visa gift card. There is a new drawing every day through Sept. 30.
