THE WOODLANDS, TX - DID YOU KNOW? One in seven people will need blood at some point in their lifetime, but only one in 20 eligible donors will donate. That’s only five percent. Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center needs 1,000 donations every day of the year to serve patients in our surrounding communities. This holiday season, give a gift that will make a difference – give the gift of life.

The YMCA is Here for You. The Woodlands Family YMCAs will host the Blood Donor Coach in December, at both locations, to help address the critical needs of blood supply for local hospitals. Free Covid-19 ANTIBODY Test with blood donation.

All donors are encouraged to register online for your preferred time and date. Visit
www.giveblood.org. Walk Ups are welcomed.

Please remember to Eat, Drink, and Bring I.D. The Blood Center now requires all donors and staff to wear face coverings. We want to make sure we’re protecting one another from COVID-19 while we help save the lives of patients in area hospitals. Social distancing guidelines will be followed.

Giving blood remains an essential service during the pandemic. Collecting blood is a marathon, not a sprint. Blood donors are needed to consistently give now and in the future.  Thank you for helping us save lives when patients need you the most. For more information call Roxanne Davis, 281-681-6730.
