Resolve to save more lives next year
LifeServe Blood Center is reminding the public that it’s the blood already on the shelf that helps victims in the case of attacks, tragedies and other catastrophes.
Don’t wait for a tragedy. It takes time for a unit of donated blood to be prepared for transfusion. Each donation must be screened, processed and transported to a hospital before it’s ready for patients.
It takes generous blood donors to save lives through blood donation. One pint of donated blood can go on to save the lives of three local hospital patients. This lifesaving process only takes up to an hour, and donors receive snacks when it’s all over.
The next oppportunity to donate is the Parkston Community Blood Drive Thursday, February 22, from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Avera St. Benedict Health Center.
