Winter weather has caused hundreds of lost donations over the weekend. Please give as soon as able. All types are needed, especially universal donors. For those eligible to donate, please find a Donor Center or mobile blood drive near you at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or by calling (800) 747-5401.
Every one has their own reason for giving blood. For the Luxmore family, that reason is B.J. For the past five years, B.J. Luxmore’s family and alma mater have held an annual blood drive in his memory. It’s a way for them to honor the Army Corporal who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2012, and also help others who need lifesaving blood.
