Blood Drive August 2016
August 4th 2016 — Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® partnered with Covenant, located on the first floor of our Tuscany Center building at 18756 Stone Oak Pkwy., for this summer’s blood drive. Our goal was to collect 11 pints of blood, but we exceeded that by collecting 17 pints of blood. Each pint of blood can save up to 3 lives, which means we saved 51 lives.
Everyday the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center needs over 600 units of life saving blood. One whole blood donation can save up to 3 lives. Patients needs do not take vacations or holidays, the need is ongoing.
A special thank you to everyone who donated, helped get donations and helped with the drive. We would like to take this time to recognize Mika Connor who coordinated the master donor list, Sharlene Richards who gathered names on the 3rd floor and David Akright for recruiting volunteer donors at Covenant.
Our next blood drive is scheduled for December 1, 2016. Until then, if you would like to visit one of the South Texas Blood & Tissue Centers offices to make a blood donation, they can be found here:
