LifeSouth hosts “National Hero Days” blood donations across the Wiregrass

Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Across the nation and right here in the Wiregrass, there is a serious need for blood donations.

That is why Dothan’s LifeSouth is holding a “National Hero Days” blood donations event.

Starting Thursday, October 7, until Monday, October 11, donors can receive a $20 e-gift card just for giving blood.

And as the regional director told WDHN, this incentive comes at a time when blood is in high demand.

“We are currently at an emergency need for all blood types, our hospitals are struggling to keep the blood on the shelves that they need for our patients locally” LifeSouth Regional Manager, Rebecca Hughes said. “So we’re trying to give this incentive so donors come out and save people in our community.”

Donation buses and areas will be set up throughout the Wiregrass this weekend.

Some of those locations include:

  • Dothan’s LifeSouth Office located at 3833 Ross Clark Circle — 10/7-10/10 donations
  • LifeSouth bus in Enterprise Heron Cove Apartments— 10/7-10/8
  • LifeSouth bus in Ashford — 10/8
  • LifeSouth bus at the Dothan Arby’s and Shoe Carnival — 10/9
  • LifeSouth bus at the Enterprise Walmart — 10/9
  • LifeSouth bus at the Eufaula Walmart — 10/9
