stbtc_alamodome_bannerBlood donors can do twice the good with one selfless act at the upcoming “Double Down in SA Town” drive at the Alamodome on May 21-23, helping fight the severe impact COVID-19 has had on both the community blood supply and on food available for hungry families.

The need for blood donations has grown significantly as hospitals in the region resume non-emergency surgeries and other procedures delayed because of the coronavirus outbreak. At the same time, more than 120 blood drives, representing more than 4,000 donations, already have been canceled this summer.
