The high school is at 400 S. 25th St. in Copperas Cove.

All donors will receive a mini-foam finger, courtesy of Fox Sports Southwest during the month of August.

Donors will automatically be entered in a sweepstakes for a chance to see their favorite home team play. For more information, go to www.backyardrewards.org.

Potential donors can volunteer beginning at age 16 with a parent’s consent. All donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good general health and present a photo ID.
