The recent tragic accident on I-75 caused the blood supply to be depleted even more than it was. During the holidays, the need for blood goes up, but the donation go down. People are too busy or traveling or having family come in. Then add the accident and it puts LifeSouth in a critical need for O+ and especially O-. O Negative is the universal donor where everyone can receive O Neg. Please give the gift of life and donate blood.
