Montgomery County Gives Blood in Support of Vegas

CONROE, TX - The Conroe VA Outpatient Clinic invites the community to help save lives, hosting a blood drive with Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center on Friday, Oct. 6. Following Hurricane Harvey and the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas, many individuals are seeking opportunities to help – and giving blood is an act that can help someone in need at any time.

When the local blood supply is strong, The Blood Center may meet local needs and be as prepared as possible to assist other areas in times of disaster.
