Earlier this summer, the Chamber called on all of our members to step up and help the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) combat the decreasing blood supply in San Antonio.
This initiative was meant to counter the historically low donation numbers of the summer season, a season STBTC expected to be particularly harsh for the blood supply this year.
We challenged all of you to have at least 20% of your employees donate blood, and many of you answered the call. We would like to acknowledge the following member companies for their efforts this summer to improve the local blood supply: The College of Health Care Professions, Catholic Life Insurance, Concorde Career Colleges Inc., Glazers Distributors, USAA Life Insurance Company, Tesoro Corporation, Cavendar Cadillac Company, Cavender Auto Family, Vickrey & Associates Inc., and the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.
Thank you to all of our members for helping the STBTC with blood donations this summer. Remember, our SA Business Challenge continues through Labor Day, so if you are interested in being part of our challenge, schedule a blood drive by calling 210-731-5590.
