Many of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings are still being treated for injuries. In an effort to provide some help, UAB's Red Cross blood donor room will have extended hours through April 26th.
Type O blood is especially needed, as it can be used in emergencies when there is no time to determine a person's blood type.
The blood room is located on the second floor of the UAB North Pavilion at 615 18th Street. You can donate blood from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
