You have a chance to win a new car if you donate blood this summer. United Blood Services has teamed up with Hyundai of El Paso for the summer-long blood campaign that began this morning.
Those who give blood will automatically be eligible to win a new Hyundai Accent. UBS says they need about 150 donations a day just to keep up with hospital needs, but there is one type of blood they are in desperate need of.
"We need O negative," said UBS representative LuAnn Wieland. "That especially we will take."
The summer blood drive campaign runs through the end of August. The car is scheduled to be given away in September.
