El Paso, TX — If you haven't already donated blood as part of the I-10 College Coalition Blood Drive between UTEP and NMSU, then you better hurry. Today (Thursday) is your last day to donate.
The blood drive, coincides with the big football game between UTEP and NMSU this Saturday, September 14, 2013. Normally, the blood drive would wrap up Friday, but this year it will end a day early.
United Blood Services lost one of its employees last week. Jesse Valdez had been with UBS for 12 years, but died in a motorcycle accident in west El Paso. His funeral is set for this Friday, September 13, 2013 which means UBS will only remain on the UTEP and NMSU campuses until four Thursday afternoon.
At UTEP you can find UBS by the Student Union Building, in Las Cruces they will be collecting donations outside of Corbett Center.
