You can be a hero this weekend by helping save lives right here in Lubbock. United Blood Services is holding a blood drive August 19th hoping that people will find time to stock the shelves. Since donors usually get busy with other things this time of year and we're already low on some blood types.
"It's predominantly O positive and O negative that we're behind on but you know as people get back into the back to school activities they get busy and they just don't get the time to come donate," says Les Long.
The blood drive is from 10:30 to 2:00, August 19th at the Carillon Retirement Community just East of Quaker on 18th street. You can also donate at UBS tomorrow from 9am to 4pm at 48th and University. UBS always welcomes walk-ins.
But you can also make an appointment by calling 741-1752.
