Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion to survive. To get blood to those patients in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota, LifeServe Blood Center needs 200,000 generous folks to take their turn in the blood donor chair every year!
Only 38% of the American population is eligible to donate blood, and only a tenth of those people actually do make time to save lives. Blood donors need to be at least 16, weigh 120 pounds or more and be in general good health. If you meet these criteria, please give blood at an upcoming blood drive in your area!
- Virginia Gay Hospital and Vinton Community Blood Drive, Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM at Virginia Gay Hospital, 502 N 9th Ave.
