Carter BloodCare’s mobile donation bus will be at Love Civic Center during Paris Police Department’s Texas Night Out on Oct. 4 from 4:30-8 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 during PPD’s Texas Night Out, contact Paris Police Department’s Curtis Garrett at 903-737-4137 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

“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, especially at least one time during the summer.”
