The recent inclement weather has added an extra hurdle as the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) works to fill hospital patient needs.

With snow predictions and icy conditions, a few blood drives have been canceled, in addition to community members canceling scheduled appointments and understandably so.

We hope that once the clouds have cleared and the ice melts, donors will fill our donation beds once again to help save lives. You can visit the Blood Donation page at to find a mobile drive near you or call 361-576-3651 to schedule an appointment.

Your local TV station, KAVU will also be hosting a weeklong Valentine’s blood drive at the Victoria Donor Room. Stop by Feb. 8 – 14 to give the gift of life and help boost our current blood supply.
