Blood Center Employees Help Feed the Hungry
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center's employees help save lives every day at work, and they're committed to the community in other ways too!
During The Blood Center's 2012 Summer Food Drive, employees donated more than 800 pounds of food and $9,400 for the Houston Food Bank. The Blood Center matched 50 cents on every dollar donated, for total donation of $14,100 to the Houston Food Bank.
The Blood Center’s annual summer food drive has been held for more than 20 years in partnership with the KHOU 11 summer food drive. Over the summer, children do not have access to school food programs, and the food drive is strategically placed to help fill that need.
The Blood Center is extremely proud of our employees’ ongoing support for this wonderful cause.
