June 14 is World Blood Donor Day, designed to bring awareness of the need for safe blood products and to thank donors.
This year, Whataburger and Bill Miller Bar–B-Q are teaming up with The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) for World Blood Donor Week, which will be June 14-20. All STBTC blood donors who schedule an appointment through Eventbrite and show the email confirmation during their donation will receive a Whataburger or Bill Miller Bar–B-Q $10 gift card, while supplies last. Donors can make an appointment by going to SouthTexasBlood.org/BloodDonorWeek.
Each summer, community blood supplies drop across the nation as high school students and frequent donors go on vacation.
