MAKE A RESOLUTION TO SAVE LIVES IN 2016

December 30, 2015— January is National Blood Donor Month and LifeShare Blood Centers is asking you to make a resolution to give blood in 2016. 

All blood donors giving in January will receive a “Make Your Resolution Matter” t-shirt as recognition of their blood donation.

Blood donors may commit to donate three times during the year and upon their third donation receive an insulated LifeShare tumbler. Participants can sign up for the program at www.lifeshare.org or any LifeShare center now through Jan. 31, 2016.

“Right now, about five percent of people are blood donors and everyone in the community counts on them. We’re asking everyone who can give to step up their commitment to others by making a 2016 resolution that really matters,” says Tina Hooper, spokesperson for LifeShare Blood Centers.

Give blood at a LifeShare center or at a mobile blood drive in the area. Call your local center or go to www.lifeshare.org for hours and blood drive locations. 

LifeShare Blood Centers regularly supplies blood components to 117 medical facilities throughout Louisiana, East Texas and South Arkansas. Founded in Shreveport, La. in 1942, it is a nonprofit community service provider governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. LifeShare is a member of America’s Blood Centers and the American Rare Donor Program, is licensed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and accredited by AABB.
