As usual in the summer months, there tends to be more patients needing blood than there are donors. United We Give, United We Live reminds people that if there are no volunteer blood donors, there won’t be blood when our loved ones need it.
According to a press release, just in the greater Shreveport and Texarkana area more than 1,000 blood donations are needed every week to support patients. The blood given today will be provided to the hospitals almost immediately after it is tested and cleared for patient use. It will go straight to patients in these communities or for an urgent need in the southern area where the weather is hitting.
