EL PASO - If you're a healthy adult, there aren't many excuses for not giving blood. Barnett Harley Davidson is hosting a blood drive for United Blood Services at both it's east El Paso location and the showroom in Las Cruces. To sweeten the deal, all donors will get a T-shirt and bag of "goodies" including coupons donated by local businesses. Plus, you will be entered to win 2012 Harley Super Glider FXDC.

Many people don't really think about donating bone marrow, but for those with leukemia and other blood disorders, that donation could save their life. More than half of potential candidates for a lifesaving bone marrow donation die because a donor cannot be located. To find out if you could donate, there is a screening this weekend in El Paso.
