CTMC hosting blood drive

SUBMITTED REPORT

Central Texas Medical Center will hold a Blood Drive on Thursday, March 5 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first floor in the main classroom.

“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,” she said.

Central Texas Medical Center’s mission is to extend the healing ministry of Christ. With your help people can not only be healed, but saved. The Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas says that it needs to collect over 55,000 blood donations in order to have blood products available for as many as 150,000 area patients. To help meet this need, CTMC sponsors five blood drives a year in conjunction with the Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas.

You can sign up before the event or find answers to any questions you may have about donating online at www.inyourhands.org. Be sure to use Sponsor Code: CTMC and bring your photo identification and Social Security number.

For event information, call Lisa Moore at (512) 753-3533.
