2013 graduates Benett J Gustafson from Boone High School, Connor J Lindahl from Ogden High School, and Nina Marie Flattery from Madrid High School gave their time and became gallon grads this year with LifeServe Blood Center. To become a gallon grad, a high school student must donate eight whole blood or four double red cell blood donations before they graduate. Their donations help to save approximately 24 people.
The Blood Center of Iowa joined operations with Siouxland Community Blood Bank in April, 2010 to become LifeServe Blood Center. As one of the 15th largest blood centers in the country, LifeServe Blood Center provides blood and blood products to more than 90 hospitals located across Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
