LifeServe Blood Center will hold a community blood drive Tuesday, May 9, from 12:30 to 5:30 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Jefferson.
According to LifeServe, each year more than 500,000 lives are positively impacted across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota because of LiveServe Blood Center donors.
It takes less than one hour to give blood and in that hour, a volunteer blood donor can help save the lives of up to three different hospital patients. LifeServe encourages regular blood donors to schedule their next appointment, and invites new, first time donors to roll up their sleeve to save lives.
Appointments to donate blood can be scheduled online at lifeservebloodcenter.org or by calling 800-287-4903.
