Members of the community are invited to stop by Troy Bank’s Main Office to participate in the LifeSouth Community Blood Centers Blood Drive on Thursday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Main Office is located at 1000 Highway 231 S.
LifeSouth is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community blood supplier for more than 100 hospitals in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. They are committed to meeting the blood supply needs of hospitals by providing the highest quality blood components and services.
LifeSouth is a community blood center, meaning the blood supply collected from donors in the local communities directly serves the needs of patients in the local communities they serve.
“It is so important for our community to come out and support blood drives like the one we are hosting. Just one person who chooses to donate blood (1 pint) can save up to three lives! Everyone in the community truly has the chance to be a local hero for a day,” says Dianna Lee, Marketing and Public Relations Officer at Troy Bank and Trust.
To give blood you must be in good health, 17 years or older or 16 with parental permission, weigh at least 110 pounds and show a valid photo I.D.
