World Blood Donor Day Celebration

Commit to Saving Lives on Wednesday, June 14th

KERN COUNTY, CA – Houchin Community Blood Bank is excited to celebrate World Blood Donor Day on Wednesday, June 14th with a special gesture of gratitude for blood donors. On this special day, HCBB is partnering with Cornerstone Bakery to offer delicious mini cupcakes to all donors as a token of appreciation and to celebrate their selfless contribution to saving lives. In addition to this sweet treat, all donors will have the opportunity to receive a “Summer Vibes & Saving Lives” limited-edition t-shirt.

World Blood Donor Day is not all about the gifts you can receive when you donate, but it is about the lifesaving gift of saving lives of patients in our local hospitals. This day is an international occasion that serves as a reminder that blood is a precious resource that is required every day to save lives.

HCBB invites both regular and new donors to celebrate World Blood Donor Day on Wednesday, June 14th to donate blood. By donating blood on this day and committing to donate in the future, individuals are contributing to the ongoing mission of ensuring we have a stable blood supply in our community.

“World Blood Donor Day is meant to highlight and acknowledge the tremendous impact our blood donors have and will have on countless lives,” says Rachel Nettleton, Marketing & Communications Manager. “The dedication and selflessness of blood donors, truly makes a difference in our community that goes far beyond their donation.”
