It’s the time of year when blood is in high demand, and UAB is offering a way you can help.

The “100 Days of Summer, 100 Days of Hope” blood drive is going on now at UAB Hospital.

The drive is in conjunction with the American Red Cross, and will be held from now, until July 17, 2014.

According to a news release, the blood supply nationwide and in Alabama typically falls below desired levels in the summer months following the disruption of regular donation patterns, due to vacations and summer travel.

The Great Summer Blood Drive is taking place in the UAB Hospital North Pavilion, second floor atrium, between July 7-12, 2014.

The drive finishes in UAB Highlands Hospital July 15-17, 2014.

All blood types are needed.

The drive hours at the North Pavilion, located on 18th Street and 6th Avenue South are:

Wednesday, June 9, 2014: 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Thursday June 10, 2014: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Friday June 11, 2014: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Saturday, June 12, 2014: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
