Girl Scout city-wide blood drive to save 100 lives and commemorate centennial

San Jacinto Council asks local citizens to give blood at the Houston Girl Scout Center

HOUSTON (March 7, 2012) – For 100 years, Girl Scouts has been the premier leadership organization for girls, empowering them to make a difference in the communities they live. Here’s your chance to help Girl Scouts continue this legacy.  Stop by the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council offices (3110 Southwest Freeway – adjacent to the Program Place for Girls) on Friday, March 16, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to donate blood and save lives. In observance of the Girl Scout centennial on March 12, GSSJC would like to donate 34 units of blood to save the lives of more than 100 people.

Help us reach our donation goal by spreading the word to your friends and family! They don’t have to be Girl Scouts to donate, just believe in this worthy cause. Men are also welcome to donate!
