Local Heroes Honored

Local heroes were honored in Amarillo Tuesday evening for giving the gift of life.

In a ceremony at the Coffee Memorial Blood Center, both local donors and those whose lives they saved were recognized for their efforts.

Since opening its doors in Amarillo in 1949, the Coffee Memorial Blood Center has helped over half a million patients across the High Plains.

The blood center is always taking donations. To schedule an appointment, give them a call at 358-4563.
