The Blood Center Of Central Texas Summer Promotions

Since there is no substitute for human blood or a generous spirit, blood donors play a vital role in our local healthcare system. The summer months are a time when donations typically fall due to vacations and schools being out of session. The Blood Center never takes a vacation and requires approximately 200 blood donations each day in order to provide life-sustaining blood for each of us, our friends, families and neighbors whenever the need arises. The following promotions are being offered as incentives to donate during the summer months.
