Barksdale AFB Emergency Blood Drive

Our region is in the middle of a very serious situation... LifeShare, the primary blood supply organization for our region, is at the lowest blood supply level in recent history, and they are nearing an inability to provide life-saving blood to those who need it the most.

On Tuesday 5 January 2016, from 1000-1700 HRS at Hoban Hall on Barksdale AFB, there will be an emergency blood drive held with the goal of achieving 150 donors. Please help us bring our local blood supplies back from this critical level by donating on Tuesday. Also, please spread the word about this drive by sending this information to your friends, family, coworkers, leadership and professional organizations.

If you want to donate, please sign up on one of these websites:
