There is a way to combat the sadness, isolation and stress resulting from the pandemic. Do a good deed for someone. Host a blood drive or go to the closest donor center near you and give.

Blood donors cite personal reasons for giving

Some people give blood for the ‘free swag,’ snacks or the break from a high school class or workday. Others donate the gift of life for the mini health assessment including blood pressure, pulse rate, and hemoglobin levels that are required in the pre-donation screening. Every blood donor with Carter BloodCare receives a free cholesterol check on each successful donation and will also receive a COVID-19 antibody test for a limited time during the pandemic. Donors can retrieve their antibody results within one to two weeks through a secure portal on the blood center’s web site. Many blood donors say they give blood because they know someone whose life was saved or sustained by a blood transfusion.
