Our Blood Drives Won an Award

May 03, 2022

Blood drives save lives. In 2021, our blood drives saved 1,482 lives in the greater community and garnered us a Celebration of Life Medium Group of the Year award from the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center.

The award recognizes the number of donors per blood drive. The 12 drives we held averaged 35 donors each. And we are already set to beat that number in 2022.

“Cross Creek has been an incredible community partner through the pandemic and beyond,” said Cameron Palmer, Public Relations Specialist for the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. “They increased their drives from quarterly to monthly during the pandemic when the community heavily relied on blood drives. Even with increased frequency, their participation remains high.”

Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is the only blood provider to Houston and its surrounding communities. The non-profit serves more than 170 hospitals and health care institutions.

If you haven’t participated in one of our drives, stay tuned. We have one planned from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, May 13, and again on Friday, June 10. Both are open to the public. To participate, please contact our Lifestyle Director at 281.341.8429.
