Blood donations needed

The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has planned multiple blood drives in Northside ISD in July as the need for blood continues amid the coronavirus pandemic and to prevent shortages. 

To date, more than 5,000 blood donations have been collected at NISD drives since April 2020. Last month, the 5,000th donor, nurse Norma Lopez, was recognized at Holmes HS.
