Hospital hosting blood drive

SUBMITTED REPORT

Central Texas Medical Center will hold a blood drive on Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 20 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.”

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.

For information, visit www.inyourhands.org or call Lisa Moore at (512) 753-3533.  Be sure to use Sponsor Code: CTMC and remember to bring your photo I.D. and Social Security number.
