With an estimated 41.5 million people hitting the roads for Memorial Day weekend, the need for blood donations goes up, especially just before the holiday due to the shelf life of blood.

United Blood Services needs donations to boost low supplies and to meet the needs for transfusions.

Blood platelets help control bleeding but are only good for five days, so if you can donate now, you might save lives. Walk-ins are welcome or you can schedule an appointment
