Today (June 25) in Fort Smith Sparks Medical Plaza is hosting a blood drive with the Arkansas Blood Institute.

During the summer months, local blood supply becomes low and donations are desperately needed.

Those who donate will get two free tickets to the Tulsa Zoo and free t-shirt, courtesy of the Arkansas Blood Institute.

Greg Womack with the Arkansas Blood Institute said donors will need to bring a photo ID with them.

A new online feature, called "Donor Express", will allow donors to reduce their waiting time and can be found here.

The blood drive will be held from 8:30 a.m. to Noon in the cafeteria of Sparks Medical Plaza.
