Give the gift of life during the Stephenville Rotary Club’s blood drive; the need is urgent.


By SARA VANDEN BERGE

The Stephenville Rotary Club is partnering with Carter BloodCare to host a blood drive from 1:30-5:30 p.m. on Friday, June 17, at the Walmart parking lot.

The organization states that there is a critical need for O- and B- and an urgent need for A- platelets.

Here are a few other interesting facts from Carter BloodCare.


• Healthy adults who are at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pound can donate blood every 56 days.

• 32,000 pints of donated blood are used each day in the U.S. and there is a need for blood every three seconds.

• One in 7 hospital patients need blood.

For more information about Friday’s blood drive, call Joe McFarland at 254-592-5695.
