The following drives are located in the Northside ISD area.

Blood donation has been designated as an essential public health activity and the Center needs the community to continue to donate blood to prevent shortages, especially during this time.  

Donors need to make appointments to avoid crowding and abide by social distancing guidelines. 

Donors can make appointments online here.

Donors will receive a $10 H-E-B gift card, a coupon for a free car wash, and a choice of an e-gift card.
