Coastal Bend Blood Center partners with wildlife conservation group for annual blood drive

Participating donors will be entered for a chance to win prizes such as Air Pods, outdoor gear, and concert tickets.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Coastal Bend Blood Center is partnering with Corpus Christi Ducks Unlimited for the annual Hunting for Donors Blood Drive. 

According to the blood center's event page the event will take place on Nov. 20, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cavender's Boot City off of 4914 South Padre Island Dr. 

Ashley Ramirez, Public Relations Executive for the Coastal Bend Blood Center said that the drives help aide those who might need the donations during the holiday season. 

"We strategically place these bigger blood drives during holiday seasons because we tend to see more tragedies," Ramirez said. "We want to make sure our shelves are stocked before and after the holiday season."

All donors who participate will receive a complementary T-Shirt, COVID-19 antibody test and a pair of Ice Ray tickets.

Donors will also be entered in an opportunity to win a list of prizes.
