Stewart Blood Center in Critical Need of Donors

East Texas' primary supplier of blood needs your help.  The flu, and the holiday season has wiped out Stewart Blood Center's supply.

The blood they have in storage right now didn't come from East Texas donors. Instead, units have been purchased from other parts of the state so there will be a reserve on hand.  Donations usually slow during the holidays, but this year's flu outbreak forced many regular donors to cancel.

Stewart blood Center's Ttyler location is 815 S. Baxter, and there are locations in five other East Texas cities as well.

Stewart, in all, serves 28 east texas counties.
