CBHarper 2018 Holiday Blood Drive
The Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Holiday Blood drive was a marvelous success. Throughout the year the team at CBHarper coordinates blood drives with the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center. Denise Barnhill is an integral part of leading these efforts. Denise works alongside a number of individuals in the support center including Sharlene Estes, Claudia Pena, Michelle Chavis, and Kim Dooley of the Stone Oak office who helped sign-up donors.
Donating blood is giving the gift of life. A total of 23 pints of blood was collected. This exceeded our goal of 22 pints of blood. Each pint of blood can save up to 3 lives, this translates to a total of 69 lives saved.
