Hurry in and give blood before the end of the United Blood Service's Days of Giving on Monday, December 31 and be eligible to win your choice of an Apple IPad or a $500 Visa card.  This is United Blood Services third year of the Days of Giving, which is featured during the holiday season because there is always a decrease in blood donations around this time of year.

"Our goal is just to bring awareness to get more people out and donating blood at this time of the year because we do see that decrease in donations.  The thing to always remember is that you have patients in hospitals that don't get to turn off their illness.  They can't say, oh it's a holiday today I'm going to take the day off.  They still need blood products," says Jason Conner, donor recruitment supervisor for United Blood Services.

For every one donation made can change up to three lives, so if you are still in the spirit of giving stop by any United Blood Services location.  Tomorrow they will be at Rouses Supermarket in Broussard and also at Walgreens in Rayne.  For a list of center hours or to schedule your appointment visit WWW.BLOODHERO.COM or call 235-LIFE.
