The Auburn Blood Source office has put out a call to donors stating that Blood Source has been asked to send blood products to San Francisco to help the victims of the plane crash. Blood Source always serves our local hospitals first but share with other areas when possible. Leslie Botos with Blood Source says thanks to your donations local offices are able to help.
If you have never donated before Botos wants you to know it’s quick and easy and you get a snack when you are done.
The Boeing 777 plane crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, killing at least two people. At least 181 people were transported to area hospitals, 49 with serious injuries.
