Jacksonville Blood Drive: Give The Gift Of Life On Giving Tuesday


Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, is recognized across the world as a way to give back. LifeSouth Community Blood Centers is hoping people will consider a donation beyond money this week. LifeSouth will host a blood drive with Harrell & Harrell, a Jacksonville-headquartered law firm, on Giving Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Harrell & Harrell’s headquarters at 4735 Sunbeam Road. All blood types are needed, especially type O.

All blood donors will receive a wellness screening prior to donation, and each donation will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies.

The first 25 donors will also receive a mask and tumbler, courtesy of Harrell & Harrell.
