DES MOINES, IOWA (September 27, 2021) – LifeServe Blood Center is asking community members to give blood at upcoming community blood drives this October to benefit local hospital patients.

There’s no spookier thought than a blood shortage, so eligible blood donors are urged to make room amid their Halloween festivities to donate blood this month. Each blood donation earns reward points blood donors can use to order Halloween-themed socks or other fun LifeServe gear!

Please donate at an upcoming blood drive near you. Appointments are required.

Schedule a blood donation appointment online at or call 800.287.4903.
