Give the gift of life
There’s no substitute for blood, and with 5 million people requiring a blood transfusion each year, community blood supplier LifeSouth has a hefty responsibility. To help meet its demand of 728 donors per day, or 266,000 donations a year, the center will bring its bloodmobile and team to the Shands at UF clinical atrium, adjacent to the main Shands at UF Atrium, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 6-31. With more than 1,000 drives a month, LifeSouth can provide donations to more than 100 hospitals in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. For more information, email Clay Gibbons, community development coordinator at LifeSouth, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 352-334-1000, ext. 1026.
