UBS Issues Urgent Appeal

If ever there was a time to you wanted to help the community, United Blood Services says now would be the time to come forward. Over the past few weeks, UBS has watched its supply dwindle. Now it is to the point where they can no longer meet the needs of Lubbock hospitals, and orders are going unfilled.

UBS Spokesman Les Long says, "If I had to be honest I'd say the type of blood we need most is red. We need for everybody that can donate to come donate."  The blood donation center will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  on Saturday. 

To make the deal even sweeter, Cardinal's will give away one pair of Oakley sunglasses every day to one donor leading up to July 4th.  You must be at least 17-years-old, weigh at least 110 pounds and have an ID to donate. Call (806) 741-1752 to make an appointment.
