Right now, hospitals have only a three-day blood supply for people in need.
You can save lives and do it in less than an hour at LifeSouth’s blood drive at Asbury (6690 Cahaba Valley Road, B’ham, 35242) on Thursday, Oct. 27 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Williams Chapel.
LifeSouth, a non-profit community blood bank serving more than 100 hospitals in Alabama, Florida and Georgia, will be hosting this drive. With more than 30 donor centers, 45 blood mobiles and 2,000 blood drives a month, LifeSouth is dedicated to making sure the blood is there when you or your family member is in need.
Walk-ins are also (and always!) welcome. All donors receive a recognition item and a free cholesterol screening. Donors must be 16 or older, weigh at least 110 pounds and show photo I.D. If you are 16, you must have written parental permission.
