LAS CRUCES- United Blood Services and Doña Ana County are coming together for a blood drive on Friday, December 9th.

The drive wil be held in the main rotunda of the Doña Ana County Government Center at 845 N. Motel Blvd., in Las Cruces.

Each holiday season, United Blood Services sees its blood reserves fall to critical levels. Doña Ana County invites the residents of Doña Ana County to join in giving the gift of life. The blood drive will be in effect from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with appointment slots available every 20 minutes.

To make an appointment for a screening and donation, call Janine Divyak at the Doña Ana County Planning Department at (575) 525-6130. Each donor will receive a snack and some juice, along with promotional materials to show to family and friends who might consider making a donation.

Giving blood normally takes less than an hour, and the results save lives throughout our region. The staff at United Blood Services screens each applicant and then allows qualified donors to take a seat in one of the comfortable recliners where the donations are processed.
