Blood drives scheduled

July 6, 2013 at 2:06 a.m.

The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center will hold several blood drives in the coming weeks.

"Whole blood can be donated every 56 days, and red cells can be donated every 16 weeks," said Dr. Rachel Beddard, medical director of the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center. "All blood types are needed to help maintain an adequate blood supply."

Every donation counts, as each can help save up to three lives. Anyone 16 years old weighing 120 pounds with a parental consent form or at least 17 years of age or older who weighs at least 110 pounds and is in good general health may donate blood. For more information, call 800-292-5534 or visit
