Blood Drive for National Blood Donor Month
Tuesday, January 25, 2022
Princeton, Texas: On Tuesday, January 25, 2022 City of Princeton is hosting a Blood Drive for National Blood Donor Month in partnership with Carter BloodCare. Texans need blood donations now. 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.
- Blood is needed every two seconds.
- About one in seven people entering a hospital needs blood.
- Blood is always needed for treatment of accident victims, cancer patients, hemophiliacs and surgery patients.
- Blood cannot be manufactured.
Residents can donate blood at the Community Center located at 416 N. 4th Street, Princeton, TX 75407, 1:00pm – 6:00pm.
For more information or to schedule an appointment:
Donors can complete the medical history questionnaire online on the day of donation, before arriving to give blood. People with and without COVID-19 vaccinations are both eligible to donate blood.
Carter BloodCare staff and unvaccinated donors are required to wear facial coverings at blood drives or donation centers, except when temperature is taken during screening, or when eating and drinking after the donation. Vaccinated donors are strongly encouraged to continue wearing masks. Carter BloodCare will comply with required mask mandates, as applicable.
