LifeServe: Summer puts blood donations in short supply

Posted: Updated:

Health officials in Iowa say as the temperatures rise this summer, so does their need for blood donations. Historically, the supply decreases in summer, which puts hospitals in a bind.

To combat this, donors can earn a t-shirt if they donate at a LifeServe Blood center as part of the Superhero Summer Series. Each donation can help three patients.

An upcoming drive in the Cedar Valley will be held in LaPorte City on Wednesday, June 10 from 12:30-6 p.m. It will be at the Veteran's Hall at 302 Cedar St.

To schedule a blood donation appointment, go online to lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800.287.4903.
