Blood Donation Advisory

Feb. 23, 2015, Shreveport, La. – LifeShare is asking blood donors to go to its Shreveport, Bossier City, Ruston, and Monroe, La. centers before noon today to ensure enough blood donations are on-hand prior to the wintry precipitation expected to hit the area.

"Several blood drives have had to cancel today and our Texarkana, Texas center has already closed due to weather. On average patients use more than 100 units of blood in our area daily. Knowing the dangerous roadways will prohibit many donation opportunities tomorrow, we are reminding the community to give now so that no one goes without blood if they need it this week,” says Tina Hooper, spokesperson for LifeShare Blood Centers. 

The following centers are expected to be open until at least noon today.
