Blood Drive May 1

Stephanie Mills Missions, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Be a star in the Lone Star State! Give for Texans!

On Sunday, May 1, you will have a convenient opportunity to make a lifesaving gift through Carter BloodCare. Two mobile units will be in the parking lot at the front of CRUMC from 8am-1pm. Donating blood is extremely important because blood cannot be manufactured – only you can provide this gift of life. Did you know one pint of your blood can actually save up to 3 lives? Be a star – give life.

Information:

  • Our CRUMC goal is to contribute 60 units of blood
  • If you are 16 years of age (with parental approval) or 17 years or older, in good general health, and weigh at least 110 pounds, you may be a good candidate to donate blood.
  • To sign-up for a donation time online, access the Carter BloodCare link HERE
  • Walk-ins are always welcome, but please understand you may have a longer wait time
  • It only takes about one hour to give blood
  • Ten donors can contribute per hour
  • You must bring a valid ID
  • Remember to eat a healthy meal prior to donating
  • After donating, and a drink and snack, you will be able to resume most activities
  • There is no wait time for donating blood after receiving any of the COVID-19 vaccines
  • Masks are welcome, but not required to give blood in the mobile unit
  • All Carter BloodCare staff are vaccinated against COVID-19
  • If you are not available to give on May 1, our next drive will be held on July 1; or please consider donating at a Carter BloodCare facility in your area. Tell them you attend CRUMC and our sponsor # is 020298.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIFT!
