LifeSouth needs blood donors to help

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on August 2, 2019

LifeSouth thanks donors who have donated to help the community blood supply and the emergency need for blood, however the need for all blood types continues to alleviate local and national blood shortages.

LifeSouth needs blood donors to help

LifeSouth and LifeSouth blood donors help patients at our local hospitals and a drop-in donation has caused the blood supply to dip below a two day supply. It is important to maintain over a two day supply to make sure blood is available when needed for victims of accidents, those having surgery or being patients being treated for cancers and other illnesses.

Donors are invited to stop by a LifeSouth location or blood drive. It is a great time to become a blood donor, or for regular blood donors to donate and bring a friend.

All donors receive a thank you gift, and a mini-physical, including blood pressure, temperature, iron level and cholesterol screen.

Donors must be at least 17 or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is needed. LifeSouth’s donor center in Lecanto is located at 1241 N. Lecanto Hwy. LifeSouth’s bloodmobiles will also be out at many locations in coming days.

For additional information about donation or to find a blood drive near you, call
LifeSouth toll-free at 888-795-2707 or visit
