Blood Donations Desperately Needed In Longview

An East Texas family is making an urgent cry for blood donations in Longview. 23-year-old Matthew Smiddy was critically injured Friday during a 4 wheeler accident.

Smiddy is in need of massive amounts of blood and family members have been told there is not enough blood locally for more surgery which he requires. A blood drive is set up for Sunday at the Alpine Christian Church on Alpine road. Donations are also needed at Stewart Regional Blood Center.
