Blood donations needed to beat the summer slump
We’re feeling the heat.
LifeServe Blood Center is urging all blood donors, whether you roll up your sleeve a few times a year, or if you’ve been away for a while, to hop in the donor chair and make a lifesaving gift this July.
Summer often brings a dip in donations due to vacations and other summer fun. LifeServers of all blood types are needed to boost the community blood supply back up to a stable level.
LifeServe Blood Center is working with a recent Parkston High School graduate to not only help with the summer blood supply, but also to earn a $500 college scholarship.
Please help Levi Newton reach his goal of 30 people donating blood to receive a college scholarship. He is hosting a community blood drive Wednesday, July 26, from noon to 5:30 p.m. at Avera St. Benedict Health Center, 401 West Glynn Drive, Parkston. He would like to invite the community to come out and not only help local hospitals with the summer blood supply, but also help him reach the goal to be awarded a college scholarship.
