Community blood drive Oct. 8 in Jefferson

LifeServe Blood Center will hold a community blood drive Tuesday, Oct. 8, from 12:30 to 5:30 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, 801 W. Lincoln Way, in Jefferson.

LifeServe Blood Center is the sole provider of blood to more than 120 hospitals across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. In order to make sure LifeServe’s hospital partners’ needs are met, blood donors, whether first time or gallon level, are needed each and every day.

Blood cannot be created in a lab and there’s no substitute available, so if a hospital patient in our area needs a transfusion, that blood comes directly from LifeServe Blood Center blood donors.

Persons who want to make an appointment to donate at the Oct. 8 blood drive can visit online at lifeservebloodcenter.org or call LifeServe at 800-287-4903.
