Due to a nationwide blood donation shortage, Coffee Memorial Blood Center is seeing only a 1-2 day supply of blood.
This is well before the 4-5 day supply the center is used to seeing.
The community has a great opportunity to help add to the center with the Boots and Badges Blood Drive kick off taking place on Friday June 25th.
You can donate between 6am and 7pm. Walk-ins are welcome, but you can also schedule an appointment by going to www.yourbloodinstitute.com or call 806-331-8833.
Blood donation takes about an hour and can save up to three lives.
While COVID-19 vaccination is not required of blood donors, those who have been vaccinated can donate immediately.
Coffee Memorial Blood Center is located at 7500 Wallace Boulevard.
