Critical Blood Shortage O Negative

Lubbock has a critical shortage of type "O negative" blood.   We get that word from UBS or United Blood Services.  "O negative" is the universal blood type.   So an O negative donor can give blood to anyone regardless of blood type. 

UBS has teamed up with KLLL radio for the Country Christmas Blood Drive next week.   You can donate inside a different city each day from Monday through the next Tuesday in Lubbock and 13 other cities.   Each donor gets a t-shirt, ice cream and can register for other prizes.
