Blood bank to return Wednesday

Blood bank to return Wednesday“Every two seconds, someone needs blood in the USA — blood that can only come from volunteer donors who make the choice to save lives,” said a Houchin Blood Bank spokesperson.

“There is no substitute for blood.”

The next blood drive will be held Wednesday, Aug. 15, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Kerr McGee Center.

Houchin officials note that the population of the Indian Wells Valley typically outperforms the national average of citizens who choose to “give the gift of life.”
