INBC expands hours to fill current need for blood

INBC expands hours to fill current need for blood
LEWISTON, ID - Longer hours in hopes of more blood donors, that's the goal of the Inland Northwest Blood Center in Lewiston with the expansion of their weekly schedule.

Starting on Monday, the blood bank is open at 7 a.m. The additional two hours at the beginning of the week is a move to get more blood and platelets from local donors. INBC is the only supplier for regional hospitals. They need no less than 200 donors a day to fill their current need.
