Memorial Hospital hosts blood drive, donors receive patriotic t-shirts

Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital hosted a quarterly blood drive in advance of the upcoming Memorial Day holiday because of the critical need for blood donors of all blood types. Blood supplies typically dip in the summer months making this an important time to donate blood and help ensure a stable supply for patients in need.

Missy Luna (pictured donating blood), along with Mauricio Duran, Allison Huffman and Cathy Schooley all got the red, white and blue patriotic t-shirts for being donors.

The next blood drive is scheduled for August.
