Blood donors urgently needed as supply is critical

ROCKWALL, TX – Jan. 13, 2021 – Carter Bloodcare Centers are reporting that the need for blood supply is critical.  Please help share this message so that community and patient needs throughout the DFW area can be supported.

DONORS NEEDED NOW 

The local blood supply needs your immediate attention. We are asking eligible blood donors who are feeling well to please give blood this week.

The rise in COVID-19 cases is negatively affecting our community blood drives with increased cancellations. The daily demand for blood and blood products for patients requiring chronic transfusion, scheduled surgery, and cancer treatment is ever-increasing.The hospitals’ ability to be prepared for emergencies is our immediate concern.

Please do not wait. Schedule your appointment online at one of our 25 donor centers or any of our community blood drives. Or call/text 800-366-2834.

Carter BloodCare is the community blood center providing life-saving products throughout North, Central, and East Texas.
