Letter to the Editor

Continued giving

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

This holiday season, you can give a precious gift that will help save lives, and a gift that will bring joy to a child's life. Give blood through Jan. 9 and redeem your reward points at the LifeServe Blood Center Online Store for teddy bears and other gifts for participating local hospitals.
Generosity isn't always expressed in dollars, but rather in small acts of love. Give love this season by saving a life and giving to a child in need. Donors can call LifeServe Blood Center at 800-287-4903 or visit www.lifeservebloodcenter.org to donate their points back to teddy bears for children.
