Our friends at United Blood Services once again need your help. They have informed us that they currently have less than a one day supply of Type A Negative, B Negative and O Negative blood.

Of course, blood is needed every day for emergencies, for cancer patients, other diseases, transplant procedures and accident victims.

The only way to get inventory back to an adequate level is with the help of donors like you.

You can donate at United Blood Services at 1503 Bertrand Drive in Lafayette every day of the week. Here are their hours for the week:

Monday, Tuesday & Thursday -- 8am to 5:30pm
Wednesday -- 8am to 6pm
Friday -- 8am to 4:30pm
Saturday -- 8am to 3pm
Sunday -- 8am to 2pm

To make an appointment to donate, go to www.bloodhero.com. Donors can also complete their medical questions in the privacy of their own home or office by visiting www.unitedbloodservices.org.
