Houchin’s Truxtun Avenue location reopens doors!

Houchin Community Blood Bank celebrated the grand re-opening of its Truxtun donor center Thursday after temporarily closing its doors because of decreased donations during the COVID-19 period that started in march.

The blood bank opened Monday as it looks to get back on track to providing a steady supply of blood to the community.

In its first couple of days since reopening, Houchin’s averaged 54 to 56 appointments a day. However, the center would have to get 100 to 150 units of blood a day in order to return to its average.
