If you're looking for a way to give back in 2013, then look no further. Collin Creek Mall is making it convenient to do just that. On Saturday and Sunday, February 16 and 17, the shopping center will host Carter BloodCare’s mobile donor unit. From 12 to 6 p.m., the unit will be in the parking lot on the east side near Sears.
Walk-in donors are welcome, but individuals can make an appointment by calling 817-412-5245. Donors with appointments will be taken first.
Potential donors must be at least 17-years-old, or 16-years-old with a parent’s consent, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good general health. Photo ID is required. There is no upper age limit for donors, and most medications do not interfere with donor eligibility. Carter BloodCare recommends eating a nourishing meal and drinking plenty of water before donating. For information about eligibility, please visit www.carterbloodcare.org.
Carter BloodCare is the largest blood center in Texas and is accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks, licensed by the Food and Drug Administration and a member of America’s Blood Centers.
