BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Waitr and LifeShare are partnering together to host a local blood drive in Baton Rouge as the need for blood donations rises.

At this time, there is a need for blood donations as inventory has dropped this summer, according to LifeShare.

“To maintain the blood that families need, the community must unite together during the most challenging times to do their part,” said Benjamin Prijatel, Executive Director of Blood Operations for LifeShare. “United We Give aims to bring awareness to the need for blood and it serves as a reminder that we are all reliant on the community blood supply.”

Participants of the blood drive receive a code for a free delivery from Waitr (valid until August 31), a ‘United We Give, United We Live’ t-shirt and a free box combo coupon from fellow sponsor, Raising Cane’s.

The campaign, United We Give kicks off on Thursday, July 1 to Saturday, July 3.

Dates and times to donate:

  • Thursday, July 1: 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday, July 2: 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 3: 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

*All LifeShare Donor Centers have extended hours for the event.

The Baton Rouge LifeShare donation facility is at 5745 Essen Lane.
