Urgent Need for the Central Texas Blood and Tissue Center

From the Central Texas Blood and Tissue Center:

The blood supply in Central Texas is at a critical level. We are asking all eligible donors to please visit a blood center ASAP to make their donations. Although we were able to meet the immediate needs of our local hospitals, the blood supply in Central Texas has continued to fall below our desired stocking level. Due to several recent accidents and tragedies in our community, we are currently in CRITICAL need of O negative, O positive, and A positive blood types. Our local patients need your life-saving gift and we need to maintain a stable blood supply for our community!

Take the time to donate blood at a Donor Center as soon as possible! Make an appointment online today or call 512-206-1266. Walk-ins are always welcome.
