South Texas Blood Bank hosting blood drive

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - The South Texas Blood Bank is inviting the community to roll up their sleeves for a good cause.

The blood bank has joined forces with AirLife to gather blood donations for those in need.

AirLife carries blood products with them when they go to the scene of an accident to provide blood if they may need it.

Blood donations from the community are stored at the bank and then used for those who may need it.

Here locally there is a one-year-old who is currently receiving treatment and requires a lot of blood.

The blood bank is asking community members to stop by and donate blood for this worthy cause.

The event will take place on Friday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Mall Del Norte.

The public is encouraged to come out and donate and possibly save a life.
