The Hendrick Regional Blood Center bloodmobile will be in Comanche on Monday, June 17. The bloodmobile will be parked at Brookshires from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. Hendrick Regional Blood Center supplies all of the blood and blood products used for patient care at 17 area hospitals, including Comanche County Medical Center.

Blood usage tends to increase during the summer months due to more vacation travel. “We urge community members to donate blood to help ensure that patients in the hospitals we serve have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs,” said Frances Baker, donor recruiter. “The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient needing a blood transfusion.”

Donors will receive a T-shirt. Those who have eligibility questions may call 325-670-2880.
