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.

Urgent Appeal for Blood

Published on 08 March 2021

The deep freeze that brought Texas to a standstill in February continues to have a chilling impact on our community blood supply.

Record-breaking winter weather – along with loss of power, heat and water across the state – created an imperfect storm for selfless volunteers who give blood.

For four straight days, Carter BloodCare was unable to collect blood at blood drives or any of its donor centers.

Those four days – combined with the ongoing impact of the yearlong pandemic – have left the blood supply dangerously low. These natural emergencies do not change the fact that every day, patients’ lives depend on the availability of blood for transfusions.

In this video, Dr. Merlyn Sayers, president and CEO of Carter BloodCare, shares his personal appeal on the urgency of giving blood during this critical shortage.

Schedule to donate blood today. Schedule an appointment online at any of our 25 donor centers, or by calling/ texting 800-366-2834.
