Blood donors needed ahead of trauma season
As trauma season looms, it's time for blood donors to step up and donate with LifeServe Blood Center to make sure blood is on the shelf when it’s needed.
Community medical leaders have called summer trauma season due to increased visits to local emergency rooms. Summer travel, outdoor activities and home improvement projects all unfortunately lead to an increased need for blood.
Donors are urged to schedule an appointment today for the upcoming blood drive at the Tripp Community Blood Drive Tuesday, May 18, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the EMS/Fire Hall Building on Main Street. Appointments can be made online at www.lifeservebloodcenter.org or by calling 800-287-4903.
