The next time you give the gift of life, it will be in a new and bigger location. The Blood Center of East Texas had a grand opening celebration Thursday at its new facility.

The center is now located on South Franklin Street, behind the Henderson Kidney and Dialysis Center.

The 3,000 square feet facility has six donor beds. Whole blood and platelet donations are now being accepted at the new facility.
