As we enter the summer months the need for blood goes up just like the heat.

According to Coffee Memorial available donors drop during the summer months while demand for blood increases.  This means the blood center struggles to keep their blood supply stocked.

There is always a need for O-negative and A-negative donors.  But with so many people on vacation or just traveling donations for these critical types is down.

Coffee Memorial Blood Center is located at 7500 Wallace Boulevard.  To make an appointment to donate call 806-358-4563 to make an appointment.
