Today's the day -- The day for the annual blood drive co-sponsored by the Blood Center of East Texas, the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center and the five radio stations of Townsquare Media in Lufkin and Nacogdoches.


Donating blood, plasma or platelets is one of the most important and far-reaching things anyone can do. Medical technology has produced countless medical miracles, but there is still no substitute for blood.

Donated blood saves lives every day. Trauma victims, surgery patients, premature babies, individuals with anemia, cancer patients and many more.  Donors know their donation will be "the gift of life" for someone.  If YOU are the donor, that "someone" could some day be someone you know and love, or even yourself.

Blood Center Bloodmobiles will be at Posado’s Restaurants in Lufkin and Nacogdoches today from 1 pm till 5:30 pm. Donating is easy and it will take only a half hour or so of your day.  You also get a free Commit For Life T-shirt.

So please find time to donate today. Walk-ins are welcome, but you can get in and out faster if you have an appointment at . Just register and log-in as a Digital Donor. You can also make an appointment by calling Townsquare Media in Lufkin at 936-639-4455.

Oh yes.  Posado’s Nacogdoches is located at 1315 North Street just south of SFA.  Posado’s Lufkin is at 3109 S. John Redditt just west of the Hwy 59 interchange.

We look forward to seeing you.  We want your blood.
