MLGW Honored As Lifesaver of The Year: Lifeblood's Leading Donor Organization Since 2009
March 7, 2012

MLGW was recently honored by Lifeblood as its 2011 Lifesaver of the Year, which is presented to the organization that collects the most blood among all groups in the Memphis area. MLGW employees donated 700 units of blood in 2011, making it the top donor organization in Memphis.

Lifeblood is the Memphis region’s only full-service, nonprofit blood center, and is the area’s leading provider of blood and blood components to area hospitals, supplying more than 100,000 units for local patient transfusions each year. Lifeblood is a member of America's Blood Centers, an alliance of community based, non-profit blood centers.

Potentially, Lifeblood could save up to 2,800 lives with these MLGW blood donations, as one unit of blood can save up to four lives. Through its neighborhood donor centers and full schedule of mobile blood drives, Lifeblood provides opportunities to donate blood throughout the year.
