January is Nat'l Blood Donor Month; give blood in Alta Jan. 10

Friday, January 4, 2013

Every two seconds, someone, somewhere needs blood. During the winter months the need for blood is constant, however, poor weather conditions can make it challenging for donors to give blood. In an effort to boost the blood supply during the winter months, January has been designated as National Blood Donor Month to encourage donors to donate during this critical time of year. Celebrate National Blood Donor Month by giving blood.

Please plan to give your lifesaving gift at the Alta Community Blood Drive, Thursday, Jan. 10, from 3-6 p.m. at Alta Community Center, 23 N Lake.

Sign up to save a life today! Schedule a blood donation appointment online at www.lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800.287.4903.

The Blood Center of Iowa joined operations with Siouxland Community Blood Bank in April, 2010 to become LifeServe Blood Center. They are one of the 15th largest blood centers in the country.
