Emergency blood drive set

LIVINGSTON -- An emergency community blood drive held in response to Hurricane Harvey will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, in the parking lot of the Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse, 120 U.S. 59 Loop North in Livingston.

The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center will have its donor coach in the parking lot.

Because of the devastation created in Houston by Hurricane Harvey, the blood center has been unable to receive donations in that city since Saturday, Aug. 26. Blood center officials are asking East Texas donors to help rebuild the blood supply.

Call or text Connie at 936-553-4403 to sign up.
