SAN MARCOS, TX – Central Texas Medical Center will hold a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 2, on the first floor in the hospital’s main classroom.CTMC sponsors five blood drives a year in conjunction with the Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas. Blood drives are an essential part of providing health care to the community. In order to maintain a blood supply that will support the surrounding area, 55,000 units of blood must be donated quarterly. An individual donation can save the lives of two other people.
“People don’t realize the impact that their donation alone can make,” said Lisa Moore, CTMC Blood Bank Supervisor, “as a member of the community, it is an easy, quick way to potentially help your friends and neighbors.”
You may find the link to sign up before the event or find answers to any questions you may have about donating blood, at www.ctmc.org. Be sure to use Sponsor Code: CTMC and remember to bring your photo I.D. and Social Security number.
