As more patients require treatment at Central Texas hospitals during the coronavirus pandemic, our partner We Are Blood is in continued need of blood donations. The bloodmobile will be in the TownLake YMCA parking lot on Saturday, September 12, from 11am to 4pm. Make an appointment, wear your mask, give blood, and save lives!!! *Appointments are required. Please check back here for registration links closer to the event date.* Giving blood is safe! We Are Blood manager Louis Hill shares this update on safety precautions in light of COVID-19: “We Are Blood staff will be wearing masks, and we require donors to wear them as well. We will have a few extra on the bus, in case someone forgets theirs. We have hand sanitizer everywhere and we are continuously wiping down commonly used items after each donor. We reduced the amount of people we see to 1 every 15min, to reduce the contact and risk of proximity to other people.” Anyone who is not feeling well should please stay home and give blood when they are better, Hill said. Our Social Responsibility The YMCA of Austin is proud to offer this opportunity to give back, as part of our commitment to Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. Blood donors make a lifesaving difference for so many right here in our local community. All of the blood donations collected at the drive will go directly to Central Texas hospitals and patients in need.
