Local Blood Bank Needs Platelet Donations
LifeSouth Community Blood Center is experiencing a very low number of platelet donations.
They say during the summer months, donations go down because of a number of reasons, including many families being out of town.
Blood bank administrators say platelets are a vital donation because they help stop the body from bleeding.
They are also used in surgery's and for cancer patients.
To make an appointment to donate, call LifeSouth at 334 792 9977.
