Every Summer Has a Story

Every summer has a story. Texas Blood Institute is asking Texans to make their summer story a lifesaving one by donating blood for local patients! Each donor through July 31 will receive a special summer t-shirt and their choice of one free adult admission to Science Museum Oklahoma, one free adult admission to Frontier City or two free admissions to Safari Joe’s H2O Water Park.

“Summer traditionally challenges our ability to collect blood products, as many are vacationing and outside of their normal routines,” said Dr. John Armitage, president and CEO of Texas Blood Institute. “We’re so thankful to our loyal summer partners for helping us reward those who make their summer a lifesaving one by donating blood for those in need.”

Individuals age 16 and up are urged to give blood. Blood drives will be managed according to CDC safety recommendations. Masks are required. Texas Blood Institute is committed to maintaining the safest standards for blood collection, testing and transfusion.

Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives. Appointments can be made by calling 1-877-340-8777, or clicking here to find a blood drive near you.
