As trauma season looms, it's time for blood donors to step up and donate with LifeServe Blood Center to make sure blood is on the shelf when it's needed!
Community medical leaders have called summer trauma season due to increased visits to local emergency rooms. Summer travel, outdoor activities, and home improvement projects all unfortunately lead to an increased need for blood.
Blood donated with LifeServe will stay in your neighborhood. Join us at a community blood drive in your area. Appointments are required.
- Virginia Gay Hospital and Vinton Community Blood Drive, Tuesday, May 25, 2021 from 1:45 PM - 5:30 PM at Virginia Gay Hospital, 502 N 9th Ave.
