This article is part of a series highlighting Carter BloodCare’s donor centers.

Denton Center keeps donors in the loop on daily need for blood

Loop 288 & I-35E location is convenient for residents, including UNT and TWU students and faculty

Denton residents don’t have to wait for a neighborhood mobile blood drive: There’s a dedicated donor center ready to serve you within the city’s main business loop.

Carter BloodCare’s Denton Donor Center is located directly across from Golden Triangle Mall on Loop 288 near I-35E.

Open since August 2004, the Denton center has six donor beds and two screening booths. On average, the on-site phlebotomists see more than 125 donors weekly and more than 500 donors per month.

As home to two prominent universities – the University of North Texas (UNT) and Texas Woman’s University (TWU) – Denton is a natural for donor education on the many benefits of blood donation and awareness of community needs.

With enrollment tallies of more than 40,000 students at UNT and 15,000 at TWU, the pool of potential Denton donors can have a significant, lifesaving effect for area patients in need of transfusions.

Donors can begin giving blood starting at age 16, with parental consent; those 17 and older can donate blood independently. With that in mind, it’s also vital to reach out to local teens and their families. It’s important for high school donors to understand the need for blood donation and ways to give back to support their community across Denton and North Texas.

Walk-in donors are welcome. Denton donors are also encouraged to save time by scheduling an appointment online.
