San Antonio City Council members to launch annual ‘District Challenge’ blood drive

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio City Council members will soon begin their annual competition to see which district collects the most blood donations.

The initiative is to save the lives of people like 2-year-old Cali, who relies on blood donors to survive and requires blood transfusions every four weeks, the news release mentioned.

“I am so appreciative of blood donors as they truly save lives,” said Clarissa, Cali’s mother. “Cali would not survive without blood donations. There are no words to express the impact of someone who selflessly donates blood, as it is an incredible lifesaving act.”

As of Saturday, the District Challenge drives have received more than 1,000 donations, helping around 3,000 community members.

If you decide to donate blood, you will be awarded a limited-edition red tumbler and a chance to score a 2-year lease on a 2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, according to the release.
