Blood Drive

Bloodmobile on the square at Texas Regional Bank. As we head into the holiday season we ask that people take the time to donate.  We all get busy with baking, shopping, parties and entertaining so it takes more of a commitment to donate. So encourage everyone to give early. If they donate in November they won’t be eligible again until January.  That takes them through the holiday season.
