6 on Health: LifeShare Blood Centers see decrease in blood donations
LifeShare Blood Center in Beaumont needs more donations.
Each year around the holidays, donations take a dip, but after Harvey donations took a hit as well.
Which means more donations are needed.
Donor resource coordinator Shawn Melancon says one unit of blood can be the difference between life and death.
Donating is something many people are eligible for, so it's good to go into LifeShare and see your eligibility status.
Recently, the requirements changed to donate blood, plasma and platelets, contact the local LifeShare office to find out what those requirements are.
