SIOUX CITY – LifeServe Blood Center is urging blood donors to roll up a sleeve to save local hospital patients this September.

Roll up a sleeve this month for the Pella Community Blood Drive on Monday, Sept 23 from 1:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m at the Peace Lutheran Church, 1000 Vermeer Road. You never know who you’ll be saving: it could be a community member, neighbor or even a loved one.

LifeServe Blood Center is the sole provider of blood to more than 120 hospitals across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. In order to make sure LifeServe’s hospital partners’ needs are met, blood donors, whether first time or gallon level, are needed each and every day.

Blood cannot be created in a lab and there’s no substitute available, so if a hospital patient in our area needs a transfusion, that blood comes directly from LifeServe Blood Center blood donors.

Sign up to save a life today online at or by calling 800-287-4903.
