Arkansas Blood Institute needs you to keep the blood supply “rolling along” this Summer.
Arkansas Blood Institute is hosting a blood drive with Lavaca Community on Friday, August 12, from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the bloodmobile parked at Steffey’s Pizza. Individuals ages 16 and older* are urged to give blood.
All successful donors will receive a free “Keep Rolling Along” summer t-shirt** and one free ticket to Magic Springs Theme and Water Park.
“We continue to need blood donors and summertime brings additional challenges,” said Dr. John Armitage, President and CEO of Arkansas Blood Institute. “We’re so thankful to our loyal summer partner Magic Springs for helping us reward those who make their summer a lifesaving one by donating blood for those in need.”
Appointments can be made by calling 877-340-8777 or visiting arkbi.org. Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives.
