If you knew that every two seconds someone needs blood, what would you do?
Follow in the footsteps of thousands of South Texans who donate blood. In honor of National Blood Donor Month, STBTC is celebrating those donors for their generous donation.
“Our donors are so dedicated to saving lives, they were able to help local cancer and trauma patients, as well as people in other areas such as those affected by hurricane Sandy,” said Carmen Davila, vice president of Corporate Communications. “They are living examples of what it means to be a hero.”
STBTC will also kick off the new year by giving all presenting donors in January and February a SPURS T-shirt and a chance to win a pair of SPURS tickets.
Donors must show identification, before beginning the donation process. Anyone 16 who weighs 120 pounds (with a parental consent form), or at least 17 years of age or older, who weighs at least 110 pounds, and is in good general health may donate blood.
