LifeSouth Asks for Blood Donations During the Holidays 


This holiday season LifeSouth asks the community to help make sure blood is  available to help patients during the “Don’t Be a Grinch” Blood Drive. Blood  donors who give blood at a LifeSouth donor center or blood drive Saturday,  December 17 through Sunday, January 8 will not only save lives, but will receive  a $20 e-gift card that can be used at hundreds of major retailers and restaurants.  If a donor gives a double red cell donation or a platelet donation, they will also  receive an additional $20 e-gift card for their generosity. 

LifeSouth provides blood to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Atlanta Medical  Center, North Fulton Hospital, Habersham Medical Center, Spalding Regional  Medical Center and Sylvan Grove Hospital. Please help patients at local  hospitals by donating blood.  

In addition to the e-gift card, blood donors also receive refreshments, and a mini physical including cholesterol, iron level, temperature and blood pressure. Find a  blood drive or donor center near you at
