OneBlood put out a call yesterday for the donations. The agency still needs types O negative, O positive and AB plasma. Many people waited in line to give blood yesterday only to be turned away.
Late in the day on Sunday OneBlood asked blood donors to stop coming and schedule appointments over the next few days.
"I've been here 13 years and never seen a response like this," said Pat Michaels, a spokesman for OneBlood, as he revealed the blood centers were at capacity with walk-up donors. The sentiment is understood and appreciated, but it's a little too much, too soon. But the supply will need to be replenished."
