NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

The Blood Center offices in several East Texas towns will be observing special hours for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. 

The Nacogdoches center will be open from 8 Tuesday morning until 2 p.m.  

The Lufkin location, which is normally closed Wednesdays, will also be open from 10 a.m. Wednesday to 6 p.m. that date.

Every summer, blood donations tend to drop off as donors take vacations. 

At the same time, accidents increase, providing an even greater need for emergency blood supplies. Donors are asked before barbecue and fireworks, to stop off and do your part to save a life.
