CTMC to hold May blood drive

STAFF REPORT

Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) will hold a blood drive on May 20 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first floor in its main classroom.

“People don’t realize the impact that their donation alone can make, ” said CTMC Blood Bank Supervisor Lisa Moore. “As a member of the community, it is an easy, quick way to potentially help your friends and neighbors.”

The Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas (BTCCT) said it needs to collect more than 55,000 blood donations in order to have blood products available to as many as 150,000 area patients.

CTMC sponsors five blood drives each year in conjunction with the BTCCT. Participants can sign up before the event, or find answers to commonly asked questions, at this website, using sponsor code CTMC.

Participants need to bring a photo ID and Social Security number to donate. For more information, call Moore at (512) 753-3533.
