CTMC to hold blood drive

STAFF REPORT

Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) will hold a blood drive on July 28 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in its first floor main classroom.

“People don’t realize how many lives are saved thanks to blood donors each year,” said CTMC Blood Bank Supervisor Lisa Moore. “As a member of the community, it is an easy, quick way to potentially save the life of your friend or neighbor.”

The Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas said it needs 55,000 blood donations in order to provide for as many as 150,000 area patients.

To sign up for the the event, or to obtain more information, visit inyourhands.org and use sponsor code CTMC. Donors must bring photo identification and social security number.
