First blood drive of 2017

January 25th, 2017

Carter BloodCare will be on the Main Campus on Thursday, February 2, to accept donations from altruistic JPS team members. The first blood drive of 2017 will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the OPC Auditorium.

Be sure to bring a state-issued I.D. such as a driver’s license (not just your JPS badge.)

Sign up in advance, reserving a time for donation at John Peter Smith Hospital >>

Carter BloodCare supplies blood to hospitals in 56 counties across North, Central and East Texas, including JPS. Donors provide red blood cells, platelets and plasma. Trauma patients often need all three.

Donors receive a special identification number and instructions for signing up on Carter’s Web site to receive health information, including a cholesterol check. Donors can also collect points toward rewards such as tee-shirts, water bottles and gift cards.
