EL PASO - An emergency blood drive is being held for a young boy who needs your help.

The folks at Providence Hospital say the boy is in severe need of platelets and O-negative blood. United Blood Services will be at Cielo Vista Mall, on the first floor outside of JC Penney's, this weekend from 12pm until 6pm. Everyone can help, but they're specifically looking for people with O-negative blood.

"The family from this kid is from Germany, and the FDA won't allow people from Germany to donate," Martin Gomez said.

United Blood Services also has a location on Mesa Hills Dr. and on the corner of Rojas and Zaragoza. For more information, you can call them at (915) 544-5422.
