With the holiday weekend upon us the blood donation center on Dawson Rd. in Albany is asking that you stop in to donate before you leave for your vacation.
They understand that people take trips for Labor Day but the need for blood doesn't go away.
Officials at the center said they need donors of all kinds but they especially need people to donate O-negative and O-postive blood along with platelets. They say O-negative is a universal kind and O-positive is the most in demand.
