For the past sixty years United Blood Services has provided local hospitals blood and blood products made possible through donors. And for the past two years the nonprofit group has made it easier to donate with the 'Days of Giving' event. Setting up blood drives at different locations throughout Acadiana.
The ten day blood drive ensures that blood banks here will be readily available when needed. It also offers donors perks that are hard to resist. According to Jason Conner with UBS anyone who donates blood during the event will automatically be entered to win an Apple I-Pad or a five hundred dollar gift card. There will be ten winners. The days of giving event ends December 31st. If you like more information you can go to www.bloodhero.com, call 235-life or visit the following locations:
