Blood Drive Next Wednesday

LifeShare Blood Center is holding a blood drive at Frist Baptist Church in Coushatta next Wednesday, May 5th.  It will be in the Family Life Center from 3:00 to 7:00 pm. 

LifeShare’s Philip Maxfield said, “The blood supply is critically low in this area.  We need people to donate all blood types.”  Maxfield talked about the need for donations.  “Someone you know is still fighting cancer or needs surgery. The area blood supply is at critically low levels and your donation can make a difference. LifeShare would like to have a three day supply on hand but only has one day at the present time.”

Maxwell asked, “If anyone is eligible to donate, please click on the link below to schedule your donation. It’ll take you less than a minute to fill it out.

“Walk-up donors are welcome,” said Maxfield.  He added, “If you don’t know what time you want to donate choose “Plan on coming”. Walk-ins are welcome but it sure does help them to know how many are wanting to donate so they don’t run out of supplies. Please eat a solid meal, drink plenty of water (little/no caffeine), and don’t forget to bring your picture ID.”
