Blood Donation

Give Blood At Convention

Give The Gift of LifeGive The Gift of Life

The American Legion of Iowa and LifeServe Blood Center are partnering up to address the growing demand for blood donations. LifeServe Blood Center provides blood and blood products to more than 120 hospitals located across Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. On Saturday, July 20th of Department Convention , you will have the opportunity to literally give the gift of life. Reserve your time with one of the 50 available appointments. Anyone who has already given whole blood through May 25, 2019 will be eligible to donate again at Convention. Anyone attending Department Convention can donate, and as a thank you, will receive a limited donation button only available through the American Legion of Iowa.

This opportunity is a direct reflection of The American Legion’s values and ongoing efforts for serving communities. As you are aware, the annual Consolidated Post Reports provide Congress with the necessary information and thousands of volunteer hours poured into benefiting the lives and communities where the local post exists. Blood drives are some of the simplest means that provide a profound rippled impact for all involved. From the post, the donor, and to the recipient whose life it could save, the effect is wide.

The American Legion of Iowa and LifeServe Blood Center will be collaborating on more opportunities state wide. Please stay alert to such events which may be close to your area. For further information and other opportunities, you may contact LifeServe Blood Center at or 1-800-287-4903.
