Oakbend Medical Center Hold Blood Drive

Richmond, TX…OakBend Medical Center will be holding a blood drive at their main campus, 1705 Jackson Street, Richmond in the first floor conference center on Wednesday, June 12th from 1-5PM.

The public is invited to schedule a donation by registering online at https://www.commitforlife.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/281393. You may contact Ashley Musslewhite at 281-341-4812 for additional information.

This is the third blood drive OakBend Medical Center has held since the Santa Fe shootings in May of 2018.  Donors will receive a coupon from Papa John’s Houston for their donation.

According to the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center, patients in our region require about 800 units of blood every day. “Chances are that you or a loved one has been touched by receiving blood at some time in their life. If you have a friend or family member who received blood during a time of need, a replenishment blood drive is one way that you can honor your loved one, and give back to help others,” stated Joe Freudenberger, CEO of OakBend Medical Center.
