Osceola community blood drive scheduled in August

Published: Tuesday, July 9, 2013 2:18 p.m. CST

This summer, LifeServe Blood Center is offering a unique opportunity to their local blood donors to be Summer Superheroes. 

Historically, during the summer months, donations tend to decrease, but the need for blood remains constant. Blood donors can help local hospital patients by making a blood donation during this challenging time of year.

Blood donors who make a donation between now and Sept. 7 have the opportunity to redeem their donation points for a commemorative Superhero T-shirt. The limited edition T-shirts are available at the LifeServe Blood Center Online Store for just 100 points.

Osceola Community Blood Drive is scheduled 1 to 6 p.m. Friday, Aug.  2, at The Meeting Place, 1003 N. Main St.

Schedule a blood donation appointment online at www.lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800-28704903.

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.
