LifeSouth celebrates its community partnership within Calhoun County with an event at the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce. Community Development Director Brian Garrett says LifeSouth Community Blood Centers has seen how Jacksonville and Anniston have responded to the challenge of donating blood. In 2014 LifeSouth became the primary supplier of blood for Regional Medical Center Anniston, Regional Medical Center Jacksonville and Citizen’s’ Baptist Medical Center. Garrett says it takes 450 donations every month to supply hospitals in Calhoun County. LifeSouth has a bloodmobile that’s in the Anniston and Jacksonville area nearly daily. Donors must be at least 17 or 16 with parental permission, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo I-D is also required.
