WAYNE – A handful of northeast Nebraska communities will be hosting blood drives throughout the month of March.
According to a release from LifeServe Blood Center, 100% of the blood transfused in local hospitals is generously provided by LifeServe blood donors.
Giving blood is a good thing no matter where you do it, but only blood donated locally with LifeServe will end up helping community hospitals or medical centers. National collection organizations may hold blood drives around the area, but those donations are taken out of state and wouldn’t help patients in the region.
Upcoming blood drives will be held in Hartington, Pender, Allen, Wayne and Fordyce.
Schedule a blood donation appointment online at lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800-287-4903.
