Whether it is a critical illness or a life-altering accident, when the need arises only real blood will suffice. Life-saving blood cannot be manufactured or harvested, it can only be provided by generous donors.
According to LifeShare Blood Centers, approximately 1 in 7 people who enter the hospital need blood. It is always needed in the treatment of accident victims, cancer patients, hemophiliacs and surgery patients.
By donating less than an hour of your time, you could give someone a lifetime of memories.

The city of Ruston Parks and Recreation Department will be opening their hearts and pool to the canine citizens of Lincoln Parish.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and again from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, the pool is going to go to the dogs and will become the coolest place to be in the city for our hot hounds. Dogs and puppies of all sizes are welcome to show off their best doggie paddling skills at the K-9 Pool Party. Splashing will be encouraged, but aggressive dogs are not welcomed. All dogs are expected to have a paws-a-tively good time.
