Carter BloodCare: Feel good, reduce stress by volunteering to donate blood

The COVID-19 pandemic has been taxing, emotionally, physically and psychologically.

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.

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.
