By Kiersten Ehr - Digital Content Creator

SAN ANTONIO - KSAT 12's KSAT Community, welcomes back University Health System for our 2018 schedule and welcomes new partners including Energy Transfer, and San Antonio Area Chevy Dealers. 




KSAT12’s community-wide initiative, called “KSAT COMMUNITY” uses the power of its media properties to promote local initiatives to help the greatest number of South Texas residents all year long.


These three partners are focused on helping San Antonio residents by organizing events each year. 


We’re thrilled to welcome our new partners and are so thankful for our past partners as well. We intend to continue growing our program to help those most in need.

Looking Ahead in 2018--- How You Can Give Back & Make a Difference in Your Community


The very first KSAT COMMUNITY project of 2018 runs January 22-25 and is a city-wide blood drive with University Health System.


This huge blood drive draws hundreds of local residents who answer the call.


The city needs your help!


Since blood has a shelf life of only 42 days, the need is ongoing.


Blood banks must supply blood for everyday surgeries as well as emergencies that can strike at any time.


All you need to do is walk in at one of the locations below, or schedule an appointment at 210-358-2812.
