Hunt Regional EMC Blood Drive
Dec 11 @ 2:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Hunt Regional Emergency Medical Center invites the community to save lives at the upcoming blood drive.

‘Tis the season for giving life, giving back.

COMMERCE, Texas (December 7, 2018) – Less than four percent of eligible blood donors, are giving blood. Yet, many of the blood donors with Carter BloodCare make their next appointment before leaving their current donation. During a time of year when blood donation can take a ‘back seat’ to other holiday festivities, volunteer blood donors like those in Commerce make the season bright for hospital patients.

There is no substitute for blood. When a patient’s life is on the line, blood must be ready with only a moment’s notice. About 1,000 volunteer donors, giving blood every day, keep the community blood supply at a safe and sufficient level.

Hunt Regional Emergency Medical Center at Commerce is hosting a blood drive from 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm Tuesday (Dec 11) at 2800 TX-24 in the community room. For more information or to schedule an appointment time, contact Kim Saenz at (903) 408-4800.

When you give blood, you can save at least three lives because the blood is separated into several components. Some patients only need one product, like red cells or platelets; or, the patient requires a combination of them in different ratios. The blood helps to ensure chemotherapy patients receive platelets they lack; red cells are available for heart surgery patients; and when a lifesaving donor organ arrives, blood is accessible to surgeons for the operation.

Eat a nutritious meal and drink plenty of water one to two hours before giving blood. Standard eligibility requirements are a minimum weight of 110 pounds, the donor feels well that day and presents a government-issued photo ID at each donation. Potential blood donors may volunteer at age 16 with parental consent; 17-year-olds may donate independently, and there is no upper age limit for giving blood. For more information on donor eligibility and to make an appointment, call 1-800-366-2834 or visit carterbloodcare.org.
