From LifeSouth Community Blood Centers Website:

LifeSouth Community Blood Centers is a community blood supplier for local hospitals in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. LifeSouth is committed to meeting the blood supply needs of these hospitals in each of the communities we serve by providing the highest quality blood components and services.

Each year, nearly five million Americans need a blood transfusion. To meet our responsibility, we need to collect 266,000 blood donations a year. That’s 728 donors a day. With over 30 donor centers, 37 blood mobiles and over 1,000 blood drives a month, our LifeSouth team is committed to making sure the blood is there when you or your family member is in need. We are your community blood center. The blood supply collected from our donors directly serves the needs of patients at over 120 medical facilities throughout our footprint. The blood donated here will stay in our community for local patient transfusions. Only if our local supply is met will LifeSouth share our blood resources with other communities.

There are no substitutes for blood. Volunteering to give blood is giving the gift of life to patients who need transfusions. We hold this gift with the highest regard. Please consider becoming a part of our community’s blood supply by donating blood with LifeSouth.
