Give Blood: The need for blood is extremely high. There are a number of misconceptions about donating blood and the Coronavirus. Nettie Giglio a phlebotomist with Life Share Blood Center in Beaumont said their facility is a great place to give. Most importantly its safe to donate blood during the Coronavirus. Each donor has their temperature checked at the door and Life Share is practicing social distancing. Nettie Giglio said the blood supply is running very low, and they need your help.  Life Share Blood Center’s donor coach will be in Liberty in the Walmart parking lot on Thursday April 9th from 12:30 to 5:30 PM and then, on April 16th they will be at Liberty Dayton Hospital, noon to 4PM. Also donate at the Life Share Donor Center in Beaumont at 4305 Laurel Avenue. They’re open Monday thru Friday from 8AM until 6PM, and on Saturday from 7 AM to 2 PM.
