The feeling of being able to help people is an amazing one. Sometimes though, we forget that it can be something other than donations or volunteering. Sometimes it is as easy as sitting down for a few minutes and relaxing. Giving blood is that easy. Each time you give blood, you give the gift of life. This Saturday, March 28th, you'll have the chance to help save lives at the Tom Green County Relay for Life Blood Drive.

The Relay for Life Blood drive will be at the old Radio Shack store in the Sunset Mall from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00. We strongly encourage you to make an appointment, and you will be required to provide a photo ID at the time of your appointment, so don't forget! Sign up now here or you can call Carol Kohutek at 234-3343. If you are a first time donor, you will receive a card in the mail with your blood type.

Remember, if you are part of a Tom Green Relay for Life team and you donate, you can earn Super Team Points. If you are not on a team, you can request your points go towards a team of your choice. Don't forget to specify which team by name!

All donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be in good general health. Donors who are 16 must have a signed Minor Donor Permit.  You can also save a little time by completing the online Donor Health History Questionnaire. Just be sure to fill this out the SAME day that you will be giving blood.
