The Stewart Regional Blood Center in Lufkin has been busy lately. The center has had an overwhelming response since our report on the critical need for blood donations.
A critical shortage means the center has less than a day's blood supply, but since our report last Thursday, blood donations have been pouring in.
Twenty-six people gave blood last Friday. Five donors came in Saturday.
The blood center in Lufkin still has a critical need for Type-O blood. O- is known as the universal blood type because anyone can receive it.
