2024 H-E-B Challenge blood drive lends support to Texas patients 

Popular Texas grocer teams with Carter BloodCare to help neighbors in need June 21 – July 7

WACO, TEXAS (June 13, 2024) – The 21st Annual H-E-B Challenge blood drive takes place June 21 through July 7. In partnership with Carter BloodCare, the multi-city event challenges H-E-B team members and the public to donate blood to help local patients.

Employees of participating H-E-B stores compete to recruit donors. The store with the most units donated and the one with the best ratio of blood donors to H-E-B staffers will each receive a trophy.

This year’s blood drive will be held at H-E-B stores in Burleson, Cleburne, Copperas Cove, Corsicana, Ennis, Frisco, Gatesville, Granbury, Killeen, Marlin, Mexia, Plano, Stephenville, Temple, Waco, Waxahachie and Weatherford.

By giving blood, donors help children fighting cancer, patients with life-threatening injuries from vehicle accidents, mothers experiencing difficult deliveries, transplant recipients and many others.

Each donor will receive a 2024 H-E-B Challenge T-shirt as a thank-you gift from Carter BloodCare.
