Celebrate Fourth of July by saving lives with Carter BloodCare

Blood donors encouraged to give blood during the holiday summer break

WHAT:

The community is invited to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday break by donating blood
for those in need. 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.

WHEN:

Saturday, July 6, 2013
8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

WHERE:

Addison Donor Center
3955 Beltline Rd.
Addison, TX 75001

(972) 960-8895
WHY:

.
Warm weather means more outside activities and travel, and a higher need for
blood products by local hospitals. The necessity for blood will not take a holiday
break because every 90 seconds someone in the Carter BloodCare service area
needs blood.

.
Participating donor centers will celebrate Fourth of July by creating awareness
about the donor center’s location among the community.

.
During each of the Fourth of July events, all potential blood donors will be treated
to refreshments and will receive a free goody bag and be entered into prize
drawings.
