Need for blood is high and supply low, get a free king cake when you donate
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - People who donate to the LifeShare Blood Center from Jan. 26-28 will get a large free king cake. Officials said the need for blood in our community is high, but our community blood supply is low.
The organization is kicking off the Mardi Gras season partnering up with local bakeries to provide a sweet treat for all blood donors. They said there is a critical need for blood in our community. The blood from LifeShare supplies to our area hospitals and helps treat critical patients who are undergoing treatment for cancer, heart disease, and blood disorders.
Donors are encouraged to schedule a donation appointment at a LifeShare Blood Center.
