United Blood Services will host a blood drive on Friday, March 17 — St. Patrick’s Day — at the Big Spring Center for Skilled Care.
“This is a new blood drive in that we haven’t been there before,” said Linda Grace, senior donor recruitment representative. “It is a wonderful facility. We’ve teamed up with them and they have a lot of things donated for us. It’s going to be really cool for the donors and it’s on Saint Patrick’s Day so I thought we could make it even more fun.”
The drive will be held in the BloodMobile in front of the Big Spring Center for Skilled Care facility, 3701 Wasson, from 9 a.m. to noon. To sign up ahead of time, which is encouraged, those interested can call 877-UBS-HERO or go to Grace encourages those who are signed up ahead of time to complete the UBS questionnaire the day of their appointment for a quicker donation.
