EL DORADO -- LifeShare is celebrating summer by having a Blood Drive this Friday and Saturday, at the LifeShare Blood Center in El Dorado.

Every donor gets a free summer t-shirt, a $5 off coupon to Outback Steakhouse, and will be registered to win door prizes.

Organizers say summer is the most critical time when blood donations are needed.

"Collections tend to be lower in the summer. So it's very critical for us to be able to make our projections to supply the hospitals in the area with the needed blood. About 1 in 7 people entering the hospital require blood," says White.

The hours to donate at the El Dorado LifeShare Blood Center will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Their address is 443 W Oak St, El Dorado, AR and their phone number is (870) 864-8145.
