There is presently a nationwide shortage of platelet products – a combined decrease in donations and increase in product need has resulted in limited platelet availability. Please consider being screened to become a platelet donor. For more information, call 254.724.4376.

Continuing need for summer blood donations

Baylor Scott & White Blood Center in Temple, TX needs your help.

Each year, we anticipate an increased need in patient blood usage surrounding the Independence Day holiday and into the summer. Currently, we are seeing fewer donations and low blood supplies, and there is a nationwide shortage of type O blood products. However, all donors are appreciated.

Please consider donating if you are able. Donations can be maximized by giving a double red cell, platelet or plasma donation.
