LifeSouth Community Blood Centers are in need of all blood types. After last Friday’s declaration of an emergency blood shortage, donors’ response to the news across the region has been encouraging; however, the blood inventory continues to hover at emergency levels.
LifeSouth urges all eligible donors who are feeling healthy to come out and support their communities by donating blood as soon as possible. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required.
LifeSouth is hosting two blood drives in Dothan today:
- Logan's Roadhouse of Dothan from 11:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
- Shoe Station of Dothan from 4 p.m.
