Blood drive in Jefferson Tuesday

LifeServe Blood Center will hold a community blood drive in Jefferson Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 12:30 to 5:30 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, 801 W. Lincoln Way, Jefferson.

Eligible donors are encouraged to start the new by saving lives. One blood donation can save up to three lives.

As the sole provider of blood to more than 120 hospitals in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota, LifeServe Blood Center relies on local donors to ensure blood is on the shelf when hospital patients need it. Ninety percent of the population will need blood at some point during their lives, but less than ten percent give blood.

Appointments to donate blood can be made online at or by calling 800-287-4903. Appointments are recommended to assure efficiency, although walk-ins are welcome.
