Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — LifeSouth Community Blood Bank is facing an emergency need for blood donations.

LifeSouth is in a crisis and in need of O Positive and O-Negative blood as well as other blood types and platelets.

Emergency need means less than a days worth of blood on shelves.

LifeSouth is holding blood drives everyday, and there is a special Mother’s Day Drive.

“We’ll be out at the local Walmart’s Saturday at Southside and Northside Walmart Sunday,” LifeSouth Center Team Supervisor, Candice Johnson said. “They’ll be at Eufaula Walmart and Enterprise Walmart. They’ll be giving away $10 e-gift cards to all donors and a t-shirt.”

LifeSouth says if you do donate, make sure you have your photo I.D. and eat and drink before you go.
