As we wrap up the first month of the new year, LifeServe Blood Center is urging community members to roll up a sleeve and give blood donation a try.

Donor retention is a big struggle we face at LifeServe. Many of our donors only donate 1-2 times per year, but if they all committed to giving one more blood donation this year, our blood supply would be in a much more stable state. We encourage you to Give One More in '24 to help the local blood supply! Check out an upcoming neighborhood blood drive near you.

-Virginia Gay Hospital and Vinton Community Blood Drive, 1/30/2024 from 11:45am-3:30pm at 502 N 9th Ave, Vinton.

Schedule a blood donation appointment online at or call 800.287.4903.
