You may not know this but the need for blood donations always increases during the holiday season.
But this year, things are even more critical.
That's why United Blood Services is going to be working the day after Thanksgiving.
Both the Midland and Odessa locations will be open Friday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The Blood Mobile will also be set up Friday at the Kohl's in Midland from 1p.m. until 4 p.m.
United Blood Services will also be open on Saturday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.
