Local Blood Supply in Critical Condition

American Red Cross Urges Immediate Donations

After months of scorching temperatures, followed by wildfires and hurricanes, the blood supply in Texas is at a critical low. Donations are needed immediately. In fact, the Red Cross hopes to collect 1,370 units of blood in Texas before the end of the month to ensure that an ample supply is on the shelf before the next emergency. To schedule a blood donation or find a drive in your area, go to or call 1-800-RED CROSS.

The American Red Cross thanks you in advance for your lifesaving gift and for advancing this message to other potential donors.
