Museum of the Gulf Coast blood drive incentives: apps, T-shirt, COVID-19 antibody test

Donating blood is going to be especially rewarding this weekend at the Museum of the Gulf Coast.

LifeShare Blood Center has teamed with the museum (700 Proctor St. in Port Arthur) to offer numerous incentives for the good cause between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday.

Those who donate blood receive a Buckstin Brewing 
Co. gift card, redeemable for a free appetizer with a pizza order.

Buckstin is located at 1211 Boston Avenue in Nederland.

Donors also receive a free T-shirt, free entrance (plus a friend) to the museum and a free COVID-19 antibody test upon request.

LifeShare officials stress blood donations are “greatly needed” with donations going directly to someone fighting cancer, sickle cell,
a surgery patient or an accident victim.
