LifeSouth to Host Community Blood Drive in Support of Santa Fe High School

Press release from LifeSouth Community Blood Centers

LifeSouth invites the community to support Santa Fe High School and save up to three lives in local hospitals when they host a blood drive on Saturday, February 6.  The drive will be held at the Hal Brady Recreation Complex Gymnasium, located at 14300 NW 146 Terrace in Alachua, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. This blood drive will benefit Santa Fe High School, which will receive a grant based on the number of donors. More blood donations will mean more support for our local high school and more lives saved.

To maintain social distancing, all donors will be spaced apart while waiting and donating blood. Donor temperature will be checked at the door prior to entering the blood drive. All donors will receive coupon for a free one-topping Domino’s pizza, a recognition item, a special t-shirt, and a free COVID-19 antibody screening. Blood donors must be at least 17 (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds, and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. LifeSouth supplies one hundred percent of the blood to all the hospitals in Gainesville and the surrounding communities. For more information on donating blood or to schedule an appointment to donate, call toll-free 888-795-2707 or visit lifesouth.org.
