Each year at this time of year Townsquare Media partners with United Blood Services and Sterling Automotive to bring you 'Reasons For The Season'.

You can give blood at various locations throughout Acadiana to save lives and possibly win valuable prizes.  Each day during this blood drive a lucky donor will win a $500 VISA gift card.
