Many wonderful blood donors volunteered their time to make a life-saving blood donation at the recent Dysart Community Blood Drive. A total of 52 people registered to donate blood and 44 units of blood were collected.
Doug Mehlhaus and the Dysart Lions Club were instrumental in helping to organize and sponsor this blood drive. Committed volunteers are key to maintaining the blood supply in our local community.
The Blood Center of Iowa joined operations with Siouxland Community Blood Bank in April 2010 to become LifeServe Blood Center. As one of the 15 largest blood centers in the country, LifeServe provides blood and blood products to 87 hospitals located across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.
LifeServe is commited to providing premier service to volunteer blood donors and access to a safe, quality blood supply for hospitals and patients.
Eligible blood donors must be at leats 16 years old, should weigh at least 120 pounds and should be in good general health.
