CORPUS CHRISTI -

Mattress Firm South Texas will join the Coastal Bend Blood Center this weekend to host a blood drive at Moore Plaza (5425 S.P.I.D.).

Those who participate will receive a nifty "Let's Taco Bout Donating" t-shirt, as well as tickets to a Corpus Christi Ice Rays hockey game and a Sonic Drive-In coupon.

Each month, CBBC supplies over 2,400 blood donations. This includes blood being made available for everyone from victims of automobile accidents to women giving birth.

You may be eligible to donate if you:

  • Are in general good health
  • Are 17 years of age or older
  • Weigh at least 110 pounds
  • Have a pulse range between 50-100
  • Have not donated whole blood in the last 8 weeks, or double red blood cells in the last 16 weeks
  • Have normal blood pressure, pulse and temperature
  • Do not have a cold or sore throat
  • Are not pregnant
  • Are not under a doctor’s care for any serious illness or injury
  • Are not taking antibiotics for an active infection

As a reminder, anyone who is interested in donating blood needs to bring a photo ID.

The event will take place from 1:00 to 5:00 PM Saturday, November 25th. Local radio stations will also be on hand to play some favorite holiday tunes.
