The Coastal Bend Blood Center (CBBC) will host its annual Rock and Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday, June 21 at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Rockport, 2401 Highway 35 Business N.

The CBBC must collect more than 150 donations daily to supply the need blood products to 20 medical facilities within their 10 Coastal Bend area counties. Local patients count on the lifesaving donations of others and this blood drive is vital to make sure the CBBC’s shelves are ready for any traumas that might occur over the July 4 weekend

Donors will be entered to win a set of Airpods, an Apple Watch, a flat screen TV, a Keurig, a Roomba, a Yeti bag, Kendra Scott jewelry, SeaWorld tickets, gift cards and much more. On top of all the prizes, blood donors will receive a “Rock & Roll” T-Shirt, a Blue Bell Ice Cream voucher, and a Texas State Aquarium coupon.

Currently, the CBBC is encouraging donors to schedule appointments, but walk-ins will be welcome.

Donors can enter this link: “”, text “APPOINT” to 999-777, call 361-855-4943 or visit the CBBC’s website at to schedule a lifesaving appointment today for the local Rock & Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive.
