LifeServe Blood Drive to be held in Roland

With the blood supply at a critically low level, LifeServe Blood Center is urging eligible blood donors to schedule an appointment as soon as they’re able in order to ensure lifesaving blood is on the shelf.

Local hospital patients need blood every day, not just following tragedies. Every two seconds, someone in the United States will require blood in order to survive. Hospitals need blood on the shelves for cancer patients, premature babies, surgery and transplant patients, trauma victims and new mothers.

Make blood donation a priority throughout the year! Give your lifesaving gift at the following upcoming mobile blood drive in your area:

Story City & Roland Communities Blood Drive, Monday, July 11, 2016 from 3:00 to 6:30 p.m. at the Roland Community Center, 208 North Main Street.

Schedule a blood donation appointment online at lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800.287.4903.
