United Blood Services needs your help this holiday season.
The 24th Annual KLLL Country Christmas Blood Drive begins Monday just days after UBS issued an urgent appeal for O-Negative blood. While all blood types are needed, UBS says right now it is unable to keep up the requests from hospitals for O-Negative, and with the upcoming holiday the shortage could continue.
The Country Christmas Blood Drive will run Monday, December 13th through Thursday, December 23rd. To donate, you must be in good health, at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds. Walk-ins are welcome but you can set up an appointment to speed up the process.
Drop by the center at 48th and University, or call UBS at (806) 741-1752.
