November is the month to give thanks, and what better way to give than by donating the gift of life? Donors come forward every day to donate blood to patients they will never know and are considered heroes to the patients they are saving. Each donation has the potential to save up to three lives. You have the opportunity to be a hero and save lives when you donate at an upcoming drive in your area.

According to the Victoria Advocate, all presenting donors in the month of November will be entered to win one of two $500 Best Buy gift cards. Donate blood at these upcoming South Texas Blood and Tissue Center blood drives:
