Blood Drive set Tuesday
The heat is on in Texas and while you make plans to cool off somewhere, patients in community hospitals still need blood transfusions. Before you head for the lake or another cooler place, remember that Carter BloodCare offers air-conditioned donor centers. Not only can you save up to three lives with one pint of blood, you also get a gift certificate for a pint of Blue Bell ice cream if you give in July.
Summer is the most challenging season to maintain the community blood supply. Donors are fewer in number and the need for blood by local hospitals is higher than usual. Giving blood often is the best way to maintain a quality and sufficient local blood supply. Whole blood donors may give every 56 days and friends and family are invited, too.
Goodall-Witcher Hospital is hosting a blood drive on Tuesday, July 23 from noon to 6 p.m. at 403 W. 3rd St. in the Clifton Community Civic Center. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact Monica Phillips-Bryant at (254) 675-8322 ext.7381.
