With no known end date in the fight against coronavirus, blood centers across the U.S., like the Coastal Bend Blood Center in our area, urgently need your help to donate blood. You can help save lives.
In recent weeks, hospital demand for blood products has grown by 30 percent after sharply declining in early April amid this rapidly changing and complex public health crisis.
Scheduled blood drives were forced to cancel as many businesses, community organizations and college campuses closed.
Our parent company Sinclair Broadcast Group has partnered with the American Red Cross and blood centers across the country like the Coastal Bend Blood Center in our area, for Sinclair Cares: Roll Up Your Sleeves. Together, we can help prevent another blood shortage as hospitals resume surgical procedures & patient treatments that were paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re healthy and feeling well, please schedule your next blood donation in the days and weeks ahead.
