Lifeshare - United We Give Drive event starts today

    LifeShare’s largest annual blood drive event. LifeShare’s goal is to draw 626 units of blood in the Shreveport, Bossier City, and Texarkana communities collectively during this 3-day event

    Summers are challenging.  Blood usage increases and typically donors decrease during summer months.  Summer activities may cause blood donation not to be on one’s summer to do list. Vacation travel means some regular blood donors are simply not in the area to donate.  Yet, the need is constant for individuals who rely on blood therapies to thrive or survive. The increase in summer activities and travel translates to higher blood usage due to accidents and injuries.  LifeShare encourages everyone who is willing or even just thought about donating to donate during United We Give. The screening process is simple and takes just a few minutes.

    When

    Thursday, June 20 through Saturday, June 22

    We encourage everyone willing to give to come out and donate. Lunch will be provided at the local blood center from 11:00 am to 1:30. As a thank you, blood donors will receive this fiery red-United We Give patriotic shirt while supplies last.
