LifeServe Blood Center is urging healthy community members to give blood to help boost the blood supply as flu season rages on.
LifeServe will be hosting a Pella Community Blood Drive on Monday, Feb. 24 from 1:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church, 1000 Vemeer Road.
Many regular blood donors have cancelled their donation appointments this winter due to illness. Since blood cannot be recreated in a lab and there is no substitute when a hospital patient requires a transfusion, it’s important that healthy donors step up to boost the blood supply.
Schedule a blood donation appointment online at lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800-287-4903.
