Blood drive seeks donors


The Daily Iowegian

---- — The next Centerville Community Blood Drive will be held Tuesday, May 6 from 12-6 p.m. at Grace Tabernacle Church, 914 N. Park St. in Centerville. Anyone interested in donating can schedule an appointment online at lifeservebloodcenter.org or by calling (800) 287-4903.

Donating blood is safe, simple and the benefit is profound; it saves lives. The donation process takes less than one hour and will help save the lives of up to three different hospital patients in our community. The process is simple. Donors will register, fill out a brief history questionnaire, give one pint of blood, then rest and enjoy cookies and beverages in the snack area. Blood donors must be 16 years of age or older, weigh at least 120 pounds, be in general good health, and donors should eat a good meal and drink plenty of fluids before donating blood.

LifeServe Blood Center provides blood and blood products to more than 100 hospitals located across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. LifeServe is committed to saving lives by providing premier service to volunteer blood donors and access to a safe, quality blood supply for hospitals and patients.
