Ringgold County Hospital

On behalf of Ringgold County Hospital, I would like to ask for your support of LifeServe Blood Center in our community. The dedicated ladies of the American Legion Auxiliary, who faithfully organize our blood drives with LifeServe Blood Center, would also appreciate your support of their efforts.

Did you know that LifeServe Blood Center is the sole supplier of blood and blood products to our local hospital? In 2012, our hospital transfused 204 units to hospital patients in need – right here in Mount Ayr. However, our community efforts did not match the needs of our hospital. Donations from community members totaled 13 units in 2012.

Our community is ripe with service-minded individuals that want to make a difference locally and support Ringgold County Hospital. We have many giving, committed blood donors in the area and our hope is that you will choose to donate blood with the organization that supplies our hospital.

The next blood drive will be held in Mt. Ayr on June 11 from 3-7 p.m. at the First Christian Church. To schedule an appointment for donation contact Judy Dillenburg at 641-344-4386 or go to www.lifeservebloodcenter.org.

Thank you in advance for your wonderful support.
