Meek blood drive coming Tuesday

The Meek Blood Services blood drive will be held on the Heart of Texas Memorial Hospital parking lot in the blood drive mobile unit. The drive will be held Tuesday, Jan. 8, from 1-6 p.m. Broadcasted live on KNEL, all blood donors will receive a free T-shirt for their contribution. “We need all the donors we can get,” said Annette Deans with the hospital. “We urge everyone who can to please come out and give the gift of life.” A photo identification card must be presented at the time of donation, and tables will be set up in the lobby of the hospital to fill out the necessary paperwork. “January is usually a slow blood drive because of the weather,” added Mrs. Deans. “But everyone can always bundle up and come sit in the warm hospital lobby until it’s time to give blood.”
