Each year, more than 500,000 lives are positively impacted across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota because of LifeServe Blood Center blood donors.


It takes less than one hour to give blood and in that hour, a volunteer blood donor can help save the lives of up to three different hospital patients. LifeServe encourages regular blood donors to schedule their next appointment, and invites new, first-time donors to roll up their sleeves to save lives.


The Story City and Roland communities blood drive will be held Thursday, May 11, from 12:30-5:30 p.m. at Story City Community Center, 503 Elm St.


Schedule a blood donation appointment online at lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800-287-4903.

LifeServe is committed to saving lives by providing premier service to volunteer blood donors and access to a safe, quality blood supply for hospitals and patients.
