TEMPLE, Texas (February 22, 2017) – February is known for Valentine’s Day and American Heart Month. Carter BloodCare encourages eligible blood donors to take an action of the heart and help others by giving blood. The blood center says they hear stories of couples and families coming in together in February to donate blood. Some people have been donating together for years, while others recently decided to spend this time together saving lives. But one thing is for certain: the gift of life is the most selfless form of love one can give during the month of the heart.
