For third summer in a row, Whataburger is thanking blood and platelet donors for saving lives
Whataburger is joining the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) to help prevent summer blood shortages by thanking donors with a “Burger and a Movie” in July.
Donors will receive a coupon for a free Whataburger (no purchase necessary) and an Alamo Drafthouse ticket for helping patients in area hospitals during the summer, traditionally the slowest time of year for blood collections. Donors who give on July 1-8 will receive two movie tickets. In addition, all donors will be entered to win one of three “Whataburger for a year” packages in July.
The partnership began three years ago. This summer already has seen reports of blood rationing in some communities, and the combination of heat and storms will only make shortages worse.
