United Blood Services says the holidays combined with the recent cold snap have sent their blood supply tumbling.

United Blood Services says they're supply is under one days worth. That means if something were to happen in the city, there wouldn't be enough blood for the next 24 hours.

Here's a look at some blood drives held set for the rest of the week. You can donate blood at the United Blood Services Center. It's at 8234 One Calais Avenue in Baton Rouge.

Tuesday & Wednesday: 10:30am-6:00pm
Thursday: 8:30am-1:30pm
Friday: 9:30am-1:30pm
Saturday 8:00am-12:00pm
