Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - There is a critical need for Type O negative blood in the Northland.

Memorial Blood Centers says summer can be a challenging time due to vacations and college and high school breaks.

Type O negative blood is the only blood type that can be safely used for emergency blood transfusions, from premature infants and children to adults needing life-saving blood

If you or someone you know is Type O negative, you can learn more about blood donations by calling 888-GIVE-BLD or online.
