United Blood Services desperately needs your blood.
Area hospitals have ordered more than 200 units that UBS currently is unable to send. The need will only grow greater with the upcoming holiday.
"We're getting very close to the July 4th weekend and since blood has a 42 day shelf life, the people can come in and donate now and it will help us make it through the holiday weekend." said Les Long with United Blood Services.
UBS is located at 48th and University. They're open until 7 o'clock Wednesday night and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday.
Walk-in's are welcome, but you can also make an appointment by calling (806) 741-1752.
