SAN ANTONIO – The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center is encouraging people to donate on Friday for World Blood Donor Day to offset a 25% drop in local donations.

World Blood Donor Day is recognized on June 14 during the summertime when donations typically decline.

People can also donate their points to the June Double Your Impact campaign, Camp Discovery. This allows donors to help community organizations like Camp Discovery, Communities in Schools and the San Antonio Food Bank twice with one blood donation.
