KPRC 2 teams up for 24th annual Summer Blood Drive

Participant has potential to save up to 3 lives with blood donation

HOUSTON – KPRC 2 is teaming up with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center for the station's 24th annual Summer Blood Drive.

Each participant has the potential to save up to three local lives with their blood donation.

The 2016 Summer Blood Drive kicks off in front of KPRC 2 Studios on Thursday, June 16, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Eligible blood donors at the KPRC 2 event on June 16 who meet the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center's donation criteria will receive a commemorative blood drive T-shirt. All appointment slots have been filled for donors to receive tickets to Typhoon Texas Waterpark and donors who come to the blood drive without a previously confirmed appointment will not receive waterpark tickets, regardless of what time they show up. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank everyone for the wonderful response to our Summer Blood Drive. 

The KPRC 2 Summer Blood Drive will then continue at several locations around the Houston area through June 20. Blood donors at those events will receive a commemorative blood drive T-shirt.
