LifeServe Blood Center needs regular blood donors, as well as new first time blood donors to roll up their sleeve this winter to help save lives.
Typically during the winter months, blood donations tend to decrease simply because of the cold and flu season and treacherous road conditions which can inhibit donors from reaching their donation destination. However, the need for blood remains constant and can often spike in the winter because of automobile accidents and increased surgeries.
Members of the community can help ensure lifesaving blood is available for local hospital patients by giving blood at an upcoming blood drive. It takes less than one hour to save a life.
Please stop in and donate at the La Porte City Community Blood Drive, Wednesday, February 11, from 12:30-6 PM at Veterans Memorial Hall, 302 Cedar St. Walk-ins are greatly appreciated. To schedule an appointment, or if you have questions, please contact Duane Slaikeu at 342-3393.
