Post-Isaac: Help

How you can help:

LifeShare Blood Centers and Opelousas General Hospital will be hosting a blood drive Friday-August 31, 2012 from 10am-5pm. We will be located at the main campus of Opelousas General Hospital in the auditorium of the 3rd floor. Due to Hurricane Isaac, 500 units were cancelled therefore; blood supply is critically low and donors are strongly encouraged to come out and donate. For any further questions, please contact Kristen Meche at (337) 412-8905, or call our Alexandria office at (318) 445-7439. Once again, blood supply is critically low so it is important to come out and donate in order to increase blood supply for this Labor Day weekend.
