East Alabama has a critical need for blood donations, which means they are down to a 3-day supply, making blood donations vital Labor Day weekend.
LifeSouth is backordered in their blood supply, especially in the negative blood types, O Negative, AB Negative, A Negative. They said anything that has a negative attached to it; they are in desperate need of.
LifeSouth said they will happily take any type of blood, but are dependent upon the community to come out, roll up their sleeves, and give over the holiday weekend.
Dusty Sharp coordinated Monday’s drive. He said one person can make a huge difference.
“Just one donation can save up to three lives, a lot of people just get fixated on the needle, and they get scared, and they don’t realize what a huge, huge impact it can make,” said Sharp.
