WAYNE – A trio of community blood drives will take place this week.
According to a release from LifeServe Blood Center, officials are urging community members to roll up a sleeve and give blood donation a try in 2022.
One blood donation has a huge local impact. In one hour, a single blood donor will help save or enhance the lives of up to three hospital patients in local medical centers.
