Mothers are always giving of themselves. What better way to honor the mothers in your life than to give blood and save three lives? Give blood at a local blood center or mobile blood drive this Saturday and Sunday, May 11 and 12. By donating blood, your community can give the gift of life in honor of the women who gave them theirs.
Carter BloodCare will be out and about this Mother’s Day weekend for your convenience. For those last minute shoppers who are frantically searching for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, you can drop by and give blood at Collin Creek Mall after you finish shopping. Collin Creek Mall features over 130 specialty shops and eateries including Macy’s, Dillard’s, jcpenney and Sears.
If you want to give blood, look for the mobile blood donation bus in the parking lot on the east side near Sears. However, the platelet donation center will be inside the mall on the lower level near Sears. Donors are welcome on Saturday, May 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 12 from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. Carter BloodCare is looking for donations of whole blood and platelets. Donors are also welcome to make an appointment for this mobile blood drive location by calling 817-412-5245. Donors with appointments will be taken first.
Every 90 seconds someone in the Carter BloodCare service area needs blood.
One in three people will need blood at some point in their lives. The life you save with your donation could be your own or the life of someone you love.
