Blood donors needed to prevent summer shortage

May 29, 2016
Reinbeck Courier

DES MOINES, Iowa LifeServe Blood Center is asking donors to step up and donate blood this summer to prevent a shortage in the community blood supply.

Summer brings school break, weddings, vacations and outdoor fun, but as schedules fill up, blood donation appointments are often forgotten or pushed to the back burner. With many regular blood donors deferred due to travel to Zika endemic areas, LifeServe Blood Center is imploring eligible donors to make an appointment and give blood this summer.

Eligible donors should weigh at least 120 pounds, be in good health and be 16 years or older. Donors under the age of 18 must bring a signed parental/guardian consent form.

Please donate at a mobile drive near you!

Beaman & Conrad Communities Blood Drive, Tuesday, June 14, 2016 from 2:30 PM - 6:00 PM at Beaman Memorial Hall, 215 Main Street.

Schedule a blood donation appointment online at or call 800.287.4903.
