Carter BloodCare’s mobile donation bus will be at Red River Credit Union on Friday, Nov.25, from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
Donating blood is an easy, positive way to support fellow Texans in need of transfusions at all hours of every day. They include older adults with age-related health issues, mothers experiencing difficulties during childbirth, major accident and emergency patients, children with anemia, and many others who depend on an available community blood supply.
“Donating blood isn’t a one-time thing. Blood has a shelf life. It’s only good for about 42 days after we draw it from a donor,” said Clinton McCoy, director of mobile donor recruitment and regional operations for Carter BloodCare.
For more information about the upcoming blood drive at Red River Credit Union, 1910 NE Loop 286, contact Melanie Palmer 903-735-3000 x1400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To schedule an appointment for the Nov. 25 donation, click here.
“We really need people to take the time and make it part of their civic duty, their normal routine. Donate blood every couple of months, and then donate two or three times a year.”
