UAB and the American Red Cross are teaming up for a holiday blood drive that will be held Dec. 10-Dec. 20 at two different locations. UAB says blood donations are especially needed at this time of year since travel and holiday plans can affect donation patterns.
The blood drive will be held at the North Pavilion Dec. 10-15 and at UAB Highlands Dec. 18-20. Participating donors will be eligible for a few prize giveaways, which includes a DVD player, other electronics and gift certificates to businesses in the UAB area.
Validated parking is available at the Fourth Avenue parking deck for the North Pavilion drive. Parking is free at UAB Highlands. Donors should bring a photo ID.
