Donors Ensure Blood Available for College Station Victims


The Blood Center of Brazos Valley extends its thanks to local blood donors, who ensured blood was immediately available for victims of Monday’s shooting in College Station. The Blood Center of Brazos Valley is the primary supplier of blood to College Station Medical Center and the secondary supplier to St. Joseph Regional Health Center. The blood that was readily available on the hospital shelf Monday afternoon was essential in treating these individuals.

Area residents who wish to help replenish the units used by the victims may donate this week at The Blood Center of Brazos Valley, 1701 Rock Prairie Road in College Station. The center is open Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Additional staff will be on hand to accommodate the number of donors expected in response to this incident.
