Blood Donations Needed; Lifesouth Opens 3 Locations today

Blood Donations Needed; Lifesouth Opens 3 Locations today

Atlanta, GA--  According to LifeSouth, the inclement weather has increased the need for all types of blood and blood platelets at local hospitals in metro Atlanta.

LifeSouth Community Blood Centers usually supplies these hospitals with blood and the Gift of Life, but like the rest of the metro area they have been unable to open to collect nor deliver the blood. 

Now that the ice and snow has begun to melt, the mission continues and needs your help by coming to a center and donating blood.

The Gainesville, McDonough, and Dunwoody centers are expected to open today (Wednesday).

You can call 404-329-1994 or check the website at www.lifesouth.org to verify opening times and to get driving directions.
