Rockwall residents asked to help neighbors in need of transfusions

Lakepointe Church hosts Carter BloodCare’s community blood drive July 16

Rockwall, Texas (July 5, 2022) – Lakepointe Church invites Rockwall residents to support neighbors in need by donating blood at the Carter BloodCare drive from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 16. The blood drive takes place at the church’s location at 701 E. I-30.

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.

At Lakepointe Church’s July 16 event, each blood donor will receive a free Give for Texans beach towel,
a summer incentive for Carter BloodCare donors.
