November 5, 2014 – The public is invited to LifeShare Blood Centers at 4305 Laurel St. in Beaumont, Texas to honor Veterans and the troops on Tues., November 11 from 8:30 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Sponsored by the American Legion Beaumont Auxiliary Unit 33, blood donors will receive a patriotic t-shirt and will be provided a card indicating they gave blood in honor of someone who has served or is serving our country. The donor can add a personal message of thanks to this card. The American Legion is asking everyone in the community to bring Walmart or HEB gift cards to the LifeShare event. The gift cards will be distributed to the troops along with the blood donation cards.
By giving blood in honor of a veteran, donors make sure this life-saving resource is available for them and others in our community,” says Tina Hooper, spokesperson for LifeShare Blood Centers.
