Lifeshare in Need of Donations

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)- Lifeshare in Alexandria needs your help.

They say that the blood usage is up and blood donations have dropped off this summer, leaving the local blood supply low.

The recent plant explosion in Baton Rouge also used up a portion of the supply at hospitals that Lifeshare helps support.

Lifeshare is encouraging everyone who can donate to help out as soon as possible.

"Donations have plummeted. We're not sure if it's summer vacations or people just aren't thinking about it, but donations have been dramatically low. We need people, every available donor. If you are eligible to donate please come out to donate blood," says Lisa Hickman with Lifeshare.

To donate just stop by Lifeshare or one of the following local blood drive locations:
