In the wake of the Orlando nightclub shootings, Texas Partners Federal Credit Union is hosting a blood drive to provide support for shooting victims. The blood drive is also being co-hosted with the League of United Latin American Citizens.

The blood drive is taking place at the Credit Union’s Harker Heights branch at 701 W. Central Texas Expressway on Wednesday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Blood donated at this drive will not be shipped directly to Orlando, but by donating blood, Scott & White will be less likely need to purchase blood from the American Red Cross, who in turn will be able to use the blood for disasters such as the Orlando nightclub shootings.

Scott & White representatives will be at the drive to assist attendees wanting to donate blood. All donors will receive a free lunch bag and be entered to win two tickets to Six Flags.
