LifeSouth sends out plea for blood donors

LifeSouth began calling for blood donors after Hurricane Harvey pummeled Texas, then came Irma and now the pleading continues.

The call was not lost on at least two women who were in the Chiefland LifeSouth location Friday, Sept. 8, giving blood before Hurricane Irma hit.

Madeline Travers, of Bronson, said she donates blood “because it’s needed and I want to do everything I can to help. They were asking for O-positive blood donations and that’s what I am.”

Travers said she tries to give blood often, but doesn’t give as often as she should.

Vickie Menasco, Chiefland, said she donates blood because, “I just feel like it’s a way I can give back.”

Though she has not given blood “for awhile, I’m hoping to start back. I’m just trying to do my part because I know there are a lot of people who can’t or will not. It’s something I can do and I’m willing to do my part.”
