SAN ANTONIO - South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) is urgently requesting all eligible donors to give blood. We thank donors who answered the call for blood over the New Year holiday weekend; however, the current community blood inventory is at a less than one day supply. That is far short of the normal status of a three to four day reserve.  All blood types are at critically low levels, and this poses a threat to our community.  

Several factors have caused the blood supply to fall to critical levels. Blood usage at local hospitals has increased significantly since the beginning of the year. “Traffic accidents are the most frequent call type our Emergency Medical Services (EMS) receives. Donating blood is one way to help,” states Deborah Foster with SAFD.

SAN ANTONIO – The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) is proud to announce Barbara Brinkmann is the lucky donor to drive away in a brand new 2012 Toyota Tundra.  Barbara was one of the 147,000 plus donors STBTC saw throughout 2011. Each time someone rolled up their sleeve to give blood, he or she was automatically entered to win the huge incentive; increasing his/her chances to win with each donation.

“I’ve been donating since I was 16 years old. It is my way to give back to the community. I knew I was entered to win the truck, but that was not my only motivation. I like knowing my donations can help cancer patients and people in the community” said Brinkmann.
