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.
