Battle 4 Blood launches this weekend

What takes less than an hour to do and can help save up to three lives? Its this years annual Battle 4 Blood drive.

Action 4 News is once again teaming up with United Blood Services to help replenish the Rio Grande Valley's blood supply.

This year, organizers are hoping to collect as much as 300 units of blood.

With your help, we can do it.

Blood donation centers will be set up this weekend at Sunrise Mall in Brownsville, Valle Vista Mall in Harlingen and La Plaza Mall in McAllen.

Staff and volunteers will be on hand all day Saturday, January 8th and Sunday, January 9th at those three locations.
