A new location of We Are Blood opened in Cedar Park on June 22. We Are Blood is the provider of blood and platelets to over 40 hospitals for 10 counties in the Central Texas area.

The blood bank has three other locations in the Greater Austin area in Round Rock, on North Lamar Boulevard and in South Austin.

Nick Canedo, We Are Blood’s vice president of community engagement, said the Cedar Park donor center was built to serve the growing area and because of past success of blood drives in Cedar Park and Leander. The nonprofit is experiencing a “massive need for support or donations” from the community.

The new We Are Blood Cedar Park location is at 251 N. Bell Blvd., Ste. 111A, Cedar Park. www.weareblood.org
