Vanessa Garcia is holding a blood and bone marrow drive for her cousin, Vanessa Rios, from 1 to 5 p.m. today at Long Branch Park.

Garcia said Rios has an incurable form of anemia, which requires blood transfusions.

Donors will be eligible for Texas Rangers tickets, coupons to McDonald’s, 7-Eleven, Olive Garden and more.

For those who cannot donate blood, volunteers will be selling T-shirts and food.
