UBS Issues Urgent Appeal

In this time of need, United Blood Services says it needs to see more of the people it calls "heroes" blood donors. A steady stream of donors raised their sleeves for the cause Friday but UBS Director Les Long says it's not enough.

UBS has less than a day's supply of all blood types on its shelves. You can donate at three different locations Saturday.

  • UBS will be open from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
  •  Health South at University and South Loop 289 will be open for donors from 9 a.m.- 2 p.m.
  • You can also donate at United Supermarket in Brownfield, starting at 2 p.m.

Or you can call UBS at (806) 741-1752 to make an appointment.
