The Woodlands Family YMCAs to Host Blood Donor Coach in December

By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TX – Did you know that one in seven people will need blood at some point in their lifetime, but only one in 20 eligible donors will donate? That’s only five percent. Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center needs 1,000 donations every day of the year to serve patients in our surrounding communities. This holiday season, give a gift that will make a difference – give the gift of life.
