The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC), a subsidiary of nonprofit BioBridge Global (BBG), is issuing an appeal for the public to donate blood and for organizations to schedule blood drives to help meet the needs of area patients, which are increasing as the year begins.   

The first weeks in January typically have the highest volume of blood use of the year as medical procedures that were put on hold over the holidays are scheduled. The increase in demand is especially challenging because blood donations decline over the holidays and, this year, a number of groups have cancelled January drives that would have helped replenish blood supplies.
