Urgent need for blood donors in Central Texas

The sole provider of blood to Central Texas hospitals and medical facilities is in urgent need of donors.

The blood bank requires consistent blood donations to ensure that life-saving blood inventory is available to treat those in need. Currently, Central Texas is welcoming thousands of visitors to Austin while, at the same time, many residents leave for Spring Break.

To help convince Central Texans to brave the crowded streets and make it in to one of our three Austin-area donor centers or one of the many mobile drives happening each day, We Are Blood has partnered with Torchy’s Tacos to offer a $5 “Burn Card” to all donors between now and March 24.

Donations can be scheduled online at weareblood.org or by phone at 512-206-1266.
