There’s no better time than now to become a blood donor.

LifeServe Blood Center often sees a dip in donations during the summer as regular blood donors take vacations and are busy with family fun. While fewer people may be giving blood, one in seven hospital patients continue to need blood transfusions in order to survive.

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

• Slater & Sheldahl Communities Blood Drive, Wednesday, July 12,3:30-6:30 p.m., at Slater United Methodist Church, 401 Story St.
