United Blood Services of Bismarck is hosting 'Vein Drain' to benefit the community.

Donate at United Blood Services located at 517 South Seventh Street Thursday, October 26th through Tuesday, Tuesday October 31st and get entered to win a night of fun at the zombie themed room at Trapped Bismarck!

Giving blood may seem like a small thing to do, but this small act of kindness goes a long way. To put it in perspective, United Blood Services needs a minimum of 250 donors per day to meet the needs of the region as it is the only blood provider to almost 70 hospitals in the Dakotas and western Minnesota.

Each donation takes approximately one hour. An hour of your time can save the lives of up to three people.

it's natural to be nervous, but you are in good hands and blood donation is a safe process. Pay it forward and stop by United Blood Services to donate.
