From donation to transfusion, many hands take part in the lives saved by blood donors and thereby touch the very heart of our community. LifeSouth Community Blood Centers offers several types of blood related services, including whole blood donations, apheresis donations, and therapeutic procedures.
To give blood you must be in good health, 17 years or older, weigh at least 110 pounds and show a valid photo I.D. Anyone who practices activities that are “high risk” for contracting the HIV or hepatitis viruses should not donate. All donors must read the Responsibilities of a Blood Donor before donating.
