Lifeshare Blood Center is warning Shreveport-Bossier residents that blood supplies are critically low going into the long 4th of July weekend.

I'm sure I don't need to tell you about the increased risk of emergencies requiring a ready blood supply going into a 'party' weekend. Lifeshare Blood Center is reporting that there is only a two-day supply currently and is encouraging people to roll up their sleeves and donate. They've scheduled a number of mobile blood drives over the weekend in an effort called 'United We Give.' Donations can also be made at both blood center locations listed below.

Donors who give during this time will receive a limited edition United We Give t-shirt. People who donate between now and July 3rd will also get a free Raising Cane's Box Combo and a free Waitr delivery code. While we know you're really giving to give the gift of life, a box combo always hits the spot!
