The Race Against the Clock Blood Drive is underway at United Blood Services in Lafayette.

Until 10pm tonight and again tomorrow from 8am - 4pm, you have the opportunity to win big prizes and help save lives.

Each blood donation can save up to 3 lives. During the summer months, blood donations are down (who wants to think about donating blood when you are getting ready for the beach??!), but blood usage is up (kids are out of school and have more mishaps, people are driving to the beach and get into more wrecks!). This blood drive is help to help replenish the low supply.

Each donor receives the Race Against the Clock event T-shirt, $10 Amazon gift card through online rewards store, McDonald’s coupon for free smoothie or McCafe coffee, pint of Blue Bell ice cream, free class to Cycle Bar and every donor gets to spin the prize barrel for an additional prize! (While supplies last).

Be a hero by donating blood. Log on to www.bloodhero.com to get started, or call 337-235-LIFE
