NAPLES — Blood donors are needed in Collier County to help the Community Blood Center quickly replenish low blood product inventories.
Constant need for blood by area patients, coupled with a nationwide shortage of Rh negative blood types has resulted in NCH Community Blood Center’s appeal for blood donors. All Rh negative blood types are needed as well as O+.
