HOUSTON - For the last 27 years, KHOU 11 has encouraged the greater Houston area to Commit for Life and donate to its annual drive benefiting the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center.
In 2017, we celebrate the more than 26,000 donations made over those 27 years, and encourage the community to keep the tradition going!
From Aug. 26 through Labor Day, Sept. 4, donations will be accepted at all neighborhood donor centers as well as mobile sites throughout the area to help support Houston’s blood supply during the Labor Day holiday.
The 2016 KHOU 11 Blood Drive brought in over 1,400 donations, which was enough to save more than 5,000 lives.
Each person who donates, or attempts to donate, and credits the “KHOU 11 Blood Drive” will receive a commemorative T-shirt - while supplies last and pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream.
Donations can be made at local neighborhood donor centers or the additional locations below. Visit www.giveblood.org for a full list of donor centers in your neighborhood.
