Blood donations needed; free antibody testing

The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has planned multiple blood drives in Northside ISD as the need for blood continues amid the coronavirus pandemic. Right now, blood supply is low and donations are greatly needed to prevent shortages.

As a thank you to donors, all blood donations will be tested for the antibody to COVID-19 from June 8 – Aug. 31. The test is free and results will be mailed within 14 days.

Visit SouthTexasBlood.org/testing for more information on testing.
