MRHC Encourages Participation in Community Blood Drive as Blood Supplies Reach Critical Lows

Blood drive

MRHC encourages locals to donate blood during the upcoming Community Blood Drive on Wednesday, November 23rd at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Manning from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.

Blood supplies are at a critical low for all blood types and LifeServe, a local blood center, currently only has a one-day supply of O+. When a hospital patient needs a blood transfusion, they rely on blood donors to make sure that lifesaving blood is on the shelf. There is no substitute for human blood, and it can’t be created in a lab. This is why MRHC partners with LifeServe to regularly host blood drives.

“A donation could help save your neighbor, a friend, a family member or a stranger in your community,” shared MRHC Education Coordinator, Julie Hodne, RN.
