Blood Drive

The city of Harker Heights held a blood drive Oct. 18 to ensure when blood is needed, blood is available. Peggy Sofge, phlebotomy team leader for Scott & White Blood Center, said the trauma center needs 70 pints of a blood a day to keep up with demand from daily surgeries, cancer patients who need transfusions and accident victims.
