2022 YMCA Blood Drive Challenge kicks off this weekend!

Posted: Dec 14, 2022 | Category: Latest Articles

We Are Blood and the YMCA of Austin are excited to be partnering for the second YMCA Blood Drive Challenge!

All seven YMCA of Austin centers are participating in the contest to see which location will collect the highest number of units at their December blood drive.

In 2021, YMCA Springs Branch collected 23 donations to win the first iteration of the competition. Which branch will take home the prize this year? That’s up to you!

If you’d like to participate, simply follow the link of the YMCA of your choice and make an appointment to donate. Walk-ins are also welcome at all drives.
