Hosting blood drives is one of the ways members of Abiding Presence serve our local community. The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center relies on volunteers like you to help support a constant blood supply for 67 hospitals in 43 south Texas counties. Come roll up your sleeve and make a difference.
The qualifications to be a blood donor are simple. You must be in good general health, at least 17 years of age (or 16 with parental consent) and weigh at least 110 lbs (or 120 lbs if 16 years old). Bring a photo ID. You receive a mini-physical (pulse, temperature and iron check) and the satisfaction that comes from saving lives.
