MONROE, La. (KNOE) - KNOE, Waitr, Cane’s & LifeShare are teaming up to help replenish our depleted blood supply in the area. LifeShare Blood Center hopes the campaign will encourage people to donate because last month Lifeshare’s blood supply was down 80 percent.

Blood drives are being held at multiple locations on July 2-4 and those who donate could get free food and other benefits. You can find the locations and times at the end of this article.

Due to the pandemic, blood is needed now more than ever. This year, Lifeshare is expanding its campaign across all of its donor centers and mobile drives. Donors in Monroe, Ruston, or El Dorado get a “United We Give” t-shirt, a Raising Cane’s coupon, a Waitr mask, and free Waitr delivery.

They’re asking anyone in good health to donate.

“United We Give serves as a reminder that one in three people at some point in their lives will need a blood transfusion. And as a community, we can come together to make sure that that person is able to receive that transfusion,” said regional director Brandon Baker.

Baker said each summer, they struggle to supply enough blood to local hospitals for surgeries and cancer patients. Thursday through Saturday, people can donate at their centers and mobile sites in Monroe, Ruston, and El Dorado from 8 am to 7 pm.

Baker said there are incentives for people who donate.

“Lifeshare’s United We Give, United We Live campaign is about bringing our community together. We’ve partnered with several local companies and businesses in our community. KNOE, Raising Canes, and Waitr to be able to provide some special gifts for this promotion. We ask anyone who is eligible to please come out and donate with us,” he said.
