Michael Ryder Memorial Blood Drive This Sunday

Help save someone’s life this Sunday, March 21st, by donating blood.  The LifeShare Bus will be at Grace Baptist Church in Brewton’s Mill, (14426 Hwy 126) from 12:30-5:30 p.m. There will be food, door prizes, games, and a bounce house for the little ones. 

This blood drive is in memory of Michael Ryder.  Michael was killed in 2015 when the work truck he was a passenger in was struck by a train.  Michael and two other young men were killed. Michael was 24. He graduated from Saline High School in 2009.  Michael was a volunteer firefighter and an organ donor. He gave blood anytime he saw the LifeShare bus no matter how much of a hurry he was in. He knew how important donating blood was and always felt like he should do his part to save a life.

Lori Williams, mother of Michael, said, “This will be the third one I’ve hosted. It just struck me one day when I was telling someone about him [Michael] donating [blood] and I gave LifeShare a call… and here we are doing our third one.”  For more information, text Lori at 318-663-2097 or send her a Facebook message.
