About LifeShare


In 1942 civic-minded residents who realized a blood bank was needed for emergencies created by WWII, founded the Shreveport Memorial Blood Bank. Operating as a nonprofit organization, during its 70 years the blood bank has had different names to reflect its growth and in 1996 it became LifeShare Blood Centers and now operates throughout many areas of Louisiana, East Texas, and southern Arkansas.
