GMIA to Host Mobile Blood Drive in Baton Rouge
Due to the coronavirus pandemic many businesses and industries are feeling the impacts of the recent stay-at-home order. This includes local hospitals that are facing a shortage of blood supplies. As emergencies never stop occurring and hospitals resume surgical procedures, it is important that we do our part to help replenish these supplies.
At Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys, we are committed to helping the community. We have partnered with Vitalant, one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit community blood service providers, to host a mobile blood drive on Thursday, July 16th. The mobile blood drive will be held at our Baton Rouge office located at 5656 Hilton Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70808.
Vitalant is currently accepting appointments via phone at 877-258-4825 or online at BloodHero.com for the mobile blood drive. Each blood sample will also be tested for COVID-19 antibodies.
We encourage anyone who is able to donate blood but cannot attend the mobile blood drive on July 16th to contact their local blood donation center to schedule an appointment.
