Monthly Blood Donation 'Thank-You': "Thank you for your donation!! Our grandmother needed a boost after a surgery and your donation will help her feel so much better and able to get back to thriving at 92!! Thank you again – your selfless act made a huge difference in her recovery.”

Over the course of November, two blood drives were hosted to support 130+ local hospitals that LifeServe Blood Center serves.
