SHERMAN -- The Texoma Regional Blood Center is low on blood and asking for your help. The chairs have been empty, thus so have the shelves. Officials say they are in dire need of donors heading into the summer months.

The center is critically low on O-positive and O-negative types along with A-positive and A-negative.

Officials say local hospitals have had to perform more surgeries lately, and the summer months don't help much.

“People are just more active and busy with their lives and outdoor activities and they don’t stop to think we still need blood and that the hospitals are still needing blood everyday," says Deedee Morehead of the Texoma Regional Blood Center.





The blood center will be at the Texas Star Bank in Van Alstyne on Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Southern Oklahoma Blood Institute in Ardmore (hours listed below) and the East Central Blood Institute in Ada are also low on blood supplies.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.
Tuesday, Thursday: 8:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m.
Second Saturday of every month: 8:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.

    what is the government going to do to help the ones that have already had their homes foreclosed on where do we get help. The bank foreclosed and made money on the house over $6000.00 and kept the money the insurance sent them a refund of over $2000.00 the bank kept it to even though we made payments for 7 years that means notheing. Lost my job my house my car now can not even get a loan to get another house thanks to family that had a home or we would have been homeless. Where is our help!
