LIFELINE Bloodmobile will be at Health Quest on East Reelfoot Avenue in Union City Monday from 1-7 p.m.
Donors will receive special T-shirts.
LIFELINE is the official blood and blood products provider for patients in Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City and 18 other West Tennessee hospitals. Patients rely on blood transfusions for treatment and recovery from devastating illnesses such as leukemia and other cancers. Accident victims and patients requiring surgery also benefit from blood transfusions. Blood given to any other blood bank does not necessarily help local patients because the blood may be sent to other parts of the state.
For information about helping to save a life by donating blood, call (800) 924-6572.
