With no known end date in the fight against coronavirus, blood centers across the U.S. urgently need your help to donate blood. You can help save lives.
In recent weeks, hospital demand for blood products has grown by 30 percent after sharply declining in early April amid this rapidly changing and complex public health crisis. Scheduled blood drives were forced to cancel as many businesses, community organizations and college campuses closed.
We have partnered with the American Red Cross and blood centers across the country for Sinclair Cares: Roll Up Your Sleeves. Together, we can help prevent another blood shortage as hospitals resume surgical procedures & patient treatments that were paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re healthy and feeling well, please schedule your next blood donation in the days and weeks ahead.
The need for blood is constant, and donors are the only source of blood for those in need.
Potential plasma donors can send an email to COVID19@SouthTexasBlood.org to find out if they qualify for the program.
