United Blood Services Hopes To "Blast Away Blood Shortage"

United Blood Services is searching for a few good samaritans to help "Blast Away The Blood Shortage."

This week, every eligible donor who rolls up their sleeve to give the gift of life will receive a free t-shirt, and a chance to win a boom box. "We know these aren't the reasons why somebody comes out to donate. They come out to save lives, but we are going to have some fun with this and give away a few things," says Les Long with United Blood Services.

Eligibility requirements are simple: You must be 17-years of age, Weigh at least 110 pounds, Be in good health, and carry a valid ID.

UBS is located at 48th and University. Walk-in's are welcome, but appointments can speed up the process. The number to call is (806) 741-1752.
