"For years, the generous communities in and around Cedar Park, Leander, and Liberty Hill have hosted blood drives and donated blood with We Are Blood to protect local patients," said Marian Garrard, CEO of We Are Blood. "As the need for blood transfusions increases in Central Texas, our new Cedar Park donor center will help meet that need, while making blood donation even more accessible and convenient for friends and neighbors."
