In the wake of the outpouring of donations after the Sept.
11 attacks, Lifeblood is asking those who were not able to donate to consider a
gift now. Red blood cells have a shelf life of 42 days, so the community has a
need for frequent blood donors. Donors can give red blood cells every 56 days.
Those who gave on Sept. 11 must wait until Nov. 6 before they can donate again.
Lifeblood uses 300 pints of blood daily. Those who give during October receive
a coupon for a free humdinger frozen treat from Dixie Queen. For information,
