HOUSTON — The Houston Community Association will host a community blood drive Tuesday, Oct. 13, from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Houston Community Center, 5005 Russia-Houston Road.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the Community Blood Center (CBC) “Every Donor Makes a Difference – Give Hope, Give Blood” cancer awareness t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.
The “Make a Difference” campaign supports October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Everyone who registers to donate now through Saturday, Oct. 31, at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive the “Every Donor Makes a Difference – Give Hope, Give Blood” t-shirt. The design features a “fight cancer” ribbon composed of multi-colored ribbons representing the many types of cancer.
Your donation will help cancer patients and many others in need of blood transfusions and other blood products. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
