DES MOINES, IOWA (July 26, 2021) – LifeServe Blood Center is asking community members to give blood to help patients in local hospitals this summer.
Travel, outdoor fun, boating, and other summer activities can all lead to an increase in traumas in local emergency rooms. Many of these patients will require blood transfusions as part of their treatment or recovery. To ensure blood is available for the predicted increased need, please give blood at an upcoming blood drive in your community! Appointments are required.
- Grinnell Community Blood Drive, Tuesday, August 17, 2021 from 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM at Grinnell United Methodist Church, 916 5th Ave..
- Brooklyn Community Blood Drive, Wednesday, August 18, 2021 from 12:30 PM – 5:30 PM at Michael J Manatt Center, 105 Jackson Street.
