Untied Blood Services Celebrates World Blood Day

Friday, June 15, 2012 - 8:34am

Thursday was World Blood Day and the idea behind the annual event is for countries to get their total blood supply from voluntary and unpaid donors. So places like United Blood Services, in McAllen, are treating their donors extra special for donating as Crystal Olvera from Untied Blood Services stated, "Every donor is a hero of course, because every pint saves three lives, so we like to do something special for them and today we have some food here, some Subway sandwiches and we have Shipley's donuts, so we are treating them today and we are thanking them for coming in to donate blood." United Blood Services will be setting up shop at all Chick-Fil-A's in Hidalgo county this weekend and the following weekend.
