Blood Drive 6/18 – Antibody Testing FREE With Each Donation

In a community like ours, every single person matters – including you. A Blood Drive is scheduled for Thursday, June 18th from 9:00am – 1:30pm in the front parking lot of the Professional Office Building at Yoakum Community Hospital through the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center!

A warrior fighting cancer, an unsuspecting Texan involved in an accident and so many more patients rely on a healthy blood supply for life support.

Right now, that supply is low. Without blood on the shelves, patients in your community and all across South Texas won’t have the blood they need to survive.

As a thank-you for your dedication to maintaining the blood supply in South Texas, we’ll test all blood donations for the antibody to COVID-19 from June 8 – Aug. 31. The test is free and results will be mailed to you within 14 days. Visit SouthTexasBlood.org/testing for more information.

For those interested in giving blood at the Blood Drive on June 18th, please contact Debbie Long at (361) 293-2321 ext. 361 or click the link below to sign up online! https://donor.southtexasblood.org/…/s…/drive_schedule/113394
