Blood drive set for WMC

United Blood Services will be at Winston Medical Center temporary location on 923 South Church Ave on Thursday, July 3, 2014 to receive blood donations.
For every successful donor, United Blood Services will donate $10 to the Winston Strong Fund.  The blood drive will be from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Free hotdogs will be provided from 11-1:30.
United Blood Services spokeswoman said they need you to give blood now because this is one of the toughest times of the year to receive donations.
“With the July 4th holiday week upon us, and people out on the roads and highways escaping the heat, not only do you have the potential for accidents and a greater blood usage, but the donor base declines substantially,” said United Blood Services. “It’s really hard to keep up the momentum.”
No appointment is necessary to donate blood.
