Staff Writer

The Hendrick Regional Blood Center bloodmobile will be at the Lions Club building, located at 1501 Lamar, on Thursday, April 11. Hendrick Regional Blood Center supplies all of the blood and blood products used for patient care at Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital.
“We urge community members to donate blood to help ensure that patients in the hospitals we serve have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs,” said Frances Baker, donor recruiter. “The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient needing a blood transfusion.”
Donors will receive a T-shirt. Those who have eligibility questions may call 325-670-2880.
