The U.P. Regional Blood Center has played a critical role in the collection and distribution of blood in the Upper Peninsula for nearly 50 years.
The center provides blood to 13 hospitals in the U.P. and all donations received through the center stay in the community.
In addition to their blood centers, they also operate a bloodmobile which goes to sites around the U.P. to bring its services right to potential donors.
Now there is a critical need for blood donations of all blood types in the Upper Peninsula.
