United Blood Services see decrease in donations during Fourth of July week

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – With more people hitting the road this Fourth of July weekend United Blood Services says they will be needing more blood donors.

The blood service says they see a decrease in donations during the summer months, and especially Fourth of July week. So, they need your help to avoid a possible shortage.

You can either donate at the Blood Center on University, or at the bloodmobile in front of the Blood Center.

Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and be in good health.
