City of Victoria employees donate blood

The blood drive is hosted once a year

The City of Victoria hosted an on-site blood drive on April 30. The drive, hosted once per year, gives the City’s employees an opportunity to donate blood.

Outside of the City of Victoria offices at 700 Main Center, the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center’s mobile blood donation unit was parked where employees could stop by to donate.

Thirteen employees signed up in advance, and the mobile blood donation unit also accepted walk-ins throughout the day. The blood drive was coordinated by the Victoria Fire Department with support from Human Resources.

To donate blood, contact the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center at 361-576-3651 or visit www.southtexasblood.org.
