Who You're Helping

When you give blood with LifeServe Blood Center, you’re truly saving local lives. We are the sole provider of blood to more than 120 hospitals in Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska. Say hello to some of the lives you’ve saved and fellow LifeServers! 

Thank the Donor

With our new Thank the Donor program, local patients (and hospital staff) can now reach out and thank you for your donation! Thank the Donor™ is a patented, free, simple service allowing a patient, friend, or loved one to send an anonymous message to the person who donated the blood being transfused. Local hospital patients are now able to thank our blood donors for their generous blood donation! Double check to make sure your email address is up to date so your recipient can reach you. 

All Blood Products Are Now Tagged With Green Heart Reminders!thank-the-donor

Thank you so much for your blood donation. It helps give me more energy for my fight against AML. I am a fourteen year old that loves all star cheerleading. I have a week at home in between aggressive chemotherapy and came in to the clinic today to receive blood. This will help me enjoy the couple of days that I have at home prior to starting inpatient chemotherapy again. Your donation assisted with my fight, thank you!

It literally saves her life each time. Thank you for thinking of others, I definitely wish the best of health, success, and happiness to you forever and always for helping our sweet daughter.

Thank you so much of your gift of blood. My father was in a motorcycle accident and needed lots of blood in his surgery. Without you, he would not have lived. We truly appreciate what you did and hope you continue to do it.
