This Thursday, July 9th and Friday, July 10th we invite you roll up your sleeves and give the gift of life. United Blood Services along with Townsquare Media are presenting the annual "Race Against the Clock" blood drive.

During the summer months, there is a decrease in blood donations due to the heat, traveling out of town, kids out of school, family gatherings, and more. This is why it is so very important for you to come out and donate.

The blood drive will be held on Thursday from 7am-10:30pm and again on Friday from 7am-4pm at United Blood Services at 1503 Bertrand Drive in Lafayette.

Everyone who donates will receive the following:

  • ‘Race Against the Clock’ t-shirt
  • McDonald’s coupon for a free small McCafé Smoothie
  • Free ice cream
  • Sonic coupon for free Route 44 drink
  • Coupon from Antler’s Seafood and Steakhouse in Broussard
  • Activity pass from Kart Ranch

Plus, there are a ton of fantastic prizes up for grabs. How about over 120 great prizes! You could win a weekend getaway to see Garth Brooks in New Orleans, $500 Visa card, Apple watch, Yeti cooler, 46" Samsung LED Smart TV, Apple watch, Kindle Fire HDX and much more.
