“We are very excited about our annual community blood drive, states Mary Beth Seals, Director of Marketing for the Lincoln County Health System. This is a joint effort between Lincoln County Health System, Blood Assurance, and our nine other supportive sponsors
“Blood Assurance has been the blood supplier to our hospital since 2009, continues Seals. They are a regional supplier of blood, located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Any donation made to Blood Assurance stays in our region. Making a donation in more than one way is giving back to your community. Blood Assurance has been successful because of people who donate in their community; those donations remain in their network. There are eleven Blood Assurance collection centers in the state and nine blood mobiles that make their way to donation sites daily, currently Blood Assurance serves 56 hospitals”
“We encourage everyone to come out and donate. We also encourage all merchants to decorate with a Christmas theme if they so choose. You never know when you or someone you love could be in need of blood. Come and share that gift with all those dearest to you”
