Granger Community Blood Drive

3-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26 at Granger Community Center, 2200 Walnut St.

LifeServe Blood Center wants to use this month of gratitude to say thanks for giving. Without generous volunteer blood donors, hospital patients wouldn’t have access to the lifesaving transfusions needed for their treatment. Donating blood is the easiest way to make a huge impact in your community. One hour of your time and one pint of your blood will save three local lives; that’s more than some people can do in a lifetime of service. Give back to your community by rolling up a sleeve at an upcoming community blood drive. Granger will hold a blood drive from 3-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
