LUBBOCK, Texas -

Vitalant is hosting its Save Our Summer Blood Drive this week at the South Plains Mall. 

Senior Recruitment Manager Brandon Baker says the need for blood donations is always higher during the summer months, but due to the pandemic stock is especially low. Fewer people are willing to donate and businesses are not hosting as many blood drives, but Bakers says the process is simple and safe for donors. 

"It's a quick and easy process, 45 minutes to an hour is all it takes to safe a life, and our local hospital patients here in Lubbock really do need blood donors to step up and help out," he said. 

All blood donations will be tested for COVID-19 anitbodies for free and donors will receive a $10 gift card.
