EL PASO- United Blood Services is holding a blood drive at El Dorado High School on Wednesday in hopes of stocking up on much needed blood for the Sun City area.

Volunteer blood donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with parent permission), weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger.
The drive is located at El Dorado High School from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
It takes 175 blood donations every day to meet the needs of area patients and to be ready for emergencies.
