“In June 2018, LifeShare had to rely on blood donors from outside Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas to provide blood to our local patients,” said LifeShare Sr. Director of Blood Operations, Benjamin Prijatel.

“Thankfully, this June, we were self-sufficient and the blood transfused in our communities was donated by those who live in those communities. Our goal is to keep that progress going throughout the summer.”

It’s not too late to get your free $10 movie gift card. The LifeShare Blood Centers will be out till 8:00 p.m. at the Walmart in Bastrop and 9:00 p.m at the Walmart in West Monroe.

Most blood donors can donate every 56 days. Those who have questions about whether they can donate can contact LifeShare to check their eligibility.
