MURRAY – Help LifeServe Blood Center meet the community’s needs this summer and give blood. 

Murray Community Blood Drive is scheduled 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 11, at Murray Community Center, 416 Maple St.

Blood donations are especially important during the summer months as donations tend to decrease this time of year. Just one blood donation can help save the lives of up to three hospital patients in the community.

Sign up to save a life today. Schedule a blood donation appointment online at www.lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800-287-4903.

The Blood Center of Iowa joined operations with Siouxland Community Blood Bank in April 2010 to become LifeServe Blood Center. 

As one of the 15th largest blood centers in the country, LifeServe Blood Center provides blood and blood products to more than 90 hospitals located across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. 

LifeServe is committed to saving lives by providing premier service to volunteer blood donors and access to a safe, quality blood supply for hospitals and patients. 

Eligible blood donors must be at least 16 years old, should weigh at least 120 pounds and should be in general good health. 

For more information about blood donation or to schedule an appointment to donate blood, call 800-287-4903 or visit www.lifeservebloodcenter.org.
