SHREVEPORT, LA — As winter weather made its way through the region, the area’s blood supply was
drastically impacted. LifeShare Blood Center is calling all donors to help replenish the region’s blood
“LifeShare supplies blood and blood products to over 100 local hospitals; regardless of the weather
happening around us, patients in our communities still need blood,” says Mandi Johnson, Director of
LifeShare’s goal is to maintain a three-day supply of blood to support patients in local hospitals, but
levels are currently hovering at a one-day supply due to severe winter weather. LifeShare is urging
everyone to donate at their nearest donor center or mobile drive when they are able to safely do so.
