LifeShare to hold blood drive showcasing police and fire departments

by Amber McDown

LifeShare will hold a blood drive on Wednesday, June 12, showcasing the local police and fire departments. The drive, themed “Cuffs & Hoses Blood Drive — The Power of You,” will take place at the Minden Civic Center from 11 AM to 5 PM.

Donors will receive a t-shirt with the event’s theme, while supplies last. The event aims to raise awareness about the critical need for blood donations while addressing the issue by accepting donations.

About every two seconds, someone needs blood. About one in every seven people who go to the hospital will need blood. Despite advances in modern medicine, there is no substitute for human blood. Patients rely on voluntary donations to receive the blood they need. LifeShare must collect approximately 500 units of blood daily to meet the needs of patients in the community.

LifeShare encourages all eligible donors to participate and become community heroes by donating blood. For more details or to register to donate, visit www.LifeShare.org.
