Carter BloodCare’s Tammie Mann has a helpful reminder for Denton residents who want to donate blood to save local lives:

“You don’t have to wait for a mobile blood drive to come to your neighborhood or campus. You have a dedicated donor center right here in town and we’d love to see everyone come here to donate,” she said.

As site supervisor for Carter BloodCare’s Denton Donor Center, Mann is eager to welcome visitors to the location directly across from Golden Triangle Mall on Loop 288 near I-35E.

Make your gift a life-saving one this holiday season

There is a gift you can give this holiday that costs nothing but time and requires no added shipping. When you give blood, you save lives by ensuring hospital patients receive the transfusions they need during the holidays and every day. All blood types are needed for a safe and sufficient blood supply. When a person donates whole blood every two months, two or three times a year, there is seldom a blood shortage. Sadly, these donors are only a fraction of those eligible to give.
