VINTON, IA, – The temps are rising and so is the need for blood donations! Blood donors are needed to boost the community blood supply. One in seven people entering the hospital will require a blood transfusion, and the only way to supply that blood is from healthy volunteer blood donors!

Spend an hour donating blood this month and save three local lives!

Virginia Gay Hospital and Vinton Community Blood Drive, Tuesday, May 28, 2019, from 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM at Virginia Gay Hospital, 502 N 9th Ave.

Area residents who roll up a sleeve at the upcoming Virginia Gay Hospital community blood drive sponsored and facilitated by LifeServe Blood Center this summer are eligible to order a limited edition Sun’s Out Arms Out t-shirt or brotank on the LifeServe Blood Center online store for just 200 points. Donors earn online store points for every donation.

Donors may also want to take advantage of LifeServe’s QuickPass feature.  QuickPass allows donors to fill out their donor history questionnaire the day of donation from the comfort of wherever they are! Donors may use a mobile device, home computer or whatever technology they like to get a head start on your donation.
