To honor the memory of victims of September 11th, Lee Memorial Blood Centers will be hosting a "Day of Remembrance" blood drive on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at each of its blood centers. All donors will receive a t-shirt.
All blood collected remains in the Lee Memorial Health System to serve your community. Lee Memorial Health System uses 800 plus units of blood each week. With both The Children's Hospital and the only trauma center within a 5-county area, the need for blood locally remains constant, and needs to be replenished daily. All blood types are currently needed especially O and A negative.
