THE WOODLANDS, TX – In the absence of a substitute for blood, the role of donors in maintaining a wide range of medical care is essential. Unfortunately, as the pace of life quickens, value systems change and communication channels fragment, blood banks are increasingly finding it difficult to maintain the blood supply to meet Requirement.

Overall, the disruptions of the pandemic year have worsened this trend. The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center must collect a minimum of 1000 units of blood EVERY DAY in order to provide needed blood products to patients in the Houston area. Every blood donor counts!

Five reasons why donating blood is important:

  1. It’s an act of kindness and compassion
  2. The Need is GREAT
  3. Supply cannot always meet demand
  4. It takes less than 60 minutes to save lives
  5. Someday you may need someone to do the same for you
