Bonfils Blood Center says blood donations needed

DENVER (AP) — The Bonfils Blood Center says supplies are dangerously low and as of Wednesday, it only had enough blood for one day.

The organization's goal is to maintain a five-day supply, and the center is worried the Memorial Day holiday will make it difficult to recruit enough donors to keep up with demand.

According to KMGH-TV (http://tinyurl.com/nt7jf9s ), Bonfils operates six Denver Metro area Community Donor Centers as well as one in Colorado Springs. There are also several mobile blood drives happening each day in various communities around the state.
