Make A Difference this Summer – Give Blood, July 19
The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center has an urgent need for blood donors during the summer months, when many donors are on vacation or focused on other activities. To help remedy this need, the HBA has scheduled a blood drive for Thursday, July 19 at First City Tower from 9:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. in the classroom behind the escalators in the tunnel. To schedule an appointment, visit www.giveblood.org and log into Digital Donor. Enter sponsor code QM07 or contact claire Nelson at 713-759-1133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The HBA also is proud to announce that the Paul E. Stallings Blood Drive has exceeded its goal of 5,000 units of blood donated from the legal community during the 2011-2012 bar year! Help get the 2012-2013 blood drive off to a good start, and help the Blood Center during its time of greatest need, by donating through the HBA drive on July 19.
