Unyts has announced that the area is in critical need of blood because of widespread illness an increased demand at local hospitals. They are asking people to consider donating blood this week at one of their blood drives. In a press release on their website Unyts stated,

"Unyts is the primary supplier of blood products to Kaleida Health, ECMC and hospitals in Niagara and Wyoming Counties. As WNY’s only community blood bank it is our responsibility to answer the call for blood products to ANY hospital in need, but we will need help from blood donors to do that. Unyts encourages all eligible donors to give blood. “O negative” donors and platelet donors are especially encouraged to give."

Unyts has ongoing blood drives through the community. Here are some for the next few days.
