Give Blood – Win a Car.
Thanks to a local car dealer, everyone who gives blood with Carter BloodCare during December will be entered to win a new car. And we all win by helping Carter maintain a healthy blood supply during the pandemic.
Carter Blood Care will have a bus in Wilshire’s south parking lot on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please consider stopping by to donate. Thousands of blood drives have been cancelled since March, resulting in more than 52,000 lost blood donations.
The minimum age to donate is 16, and those under 18 will need parental consent. The permission forms are located on the Carter website and will also be available onsite.
Carter is also offering COVID-19 antibody testing on successful donations. Donors can retrieve their results within one to two weeks through a secure portal on Carter’s website.
The safety of blood donors and Carter staff members is top priority. All blood drive setups will comply with Food and Drug Administration social distancing and sanitation protocols. Staff and donors are required to wear masks.
To reduce wait times and help with social distancing, appointments are encouraged and donors can fill out the medical history questionnaire online before coming (carterbloodcare.org/quickscreen). The form can also be accessed by downloading the Carter BloodCare app on any mobile device. Carter BloodCare limits the number of donors on each bus and creates greater space between donors’ beds at indoor blood drives. Visit carterbloodcare.org or call 817-343-1327 for more information.
