Sullivan Funeral Home hosted a blood drive with Lifeshare Blood Center on Wednesday, as people gave blood on the Lifeshare bus.

Donating blood is important, according to Lifeshare.

"Every two seconds, someone somewhere needs blood," they said. "One of every seven people who enter the hospital will need blood. The blood that helps patients comes only from caring people who volunteer to help others by donating their life-saving blood."

Upcoming blood drives include a Lifeshare Mobile Drive at Walmart on Jan. 2 from noon to 5 p.m.; a Lifeshare Mobile Drive at Davis Chemical Services on Jan. 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Jan. 7 at the Marshall Public Library from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
