DES MOINES — We’re feeling the heat.

LifeServe Blood Center is urging all blood donors, whether you roll up your sleeve a few times a year or if you’ve been away for a while, to hop in the donor chair and make a lifesaving gift this July!

Summer often brings a dip in donations due to vacations and other summer fun. LifeServers of all blood types are needed to boost the community blood supply back up to a stable level.

Please give blood at an upcoming blood drive in your area to ensure a healthy, stable community blood supply!

Woodward Community Blood Drive, Monday, July 17, 2017 from 3-6 p.m. at United Methodist Church, 108 West Fifth Street.

Perry Community Blood Drive, Friday, July 28, 2017 from 2-6 p.m. at Dallas County Hospital, 610 10th Street.
