The need for blood in the devastated areas of south Texas is growing every day. Folks here in Junction and Colorado are answering the call.

If you've not had a chance to give the gift of life, please try to schedule some time over the long holiday weekend. Many in Colorado are giving but the demad remains high. Local hospitals in the Houston area have had to shut down only making the situation worse.

The Regional  Blood Center at St. Mary's is planning to send another shipment next week. Besides St. Mary's you also give at the Grand Junction Rotary Club, American Red Cross, and the Salvation Army.
