In the aftermath of chaos and lives lost in Dallas recently, Carter BloodCare is grateful to loyal blood donors who made sure the blood center could supply local hospitals with blood products required to treat police officers and civilians, injured during an ambush following a protest march.
Mix 93-1, 101.5 KNUE, Hot 107-3 Jamz and 96X have teamed with Carter BloodCare of East Texas to host the annual Call To Arms Blood Drive from Jan. 7-12 to help save the lives of East Texans and to raise the blood supply levels here in the area. It's comforting to know that for every pint of blood that is donated, it can help save up to three lives.
Today is the first day of the Call To Arms Blood Drive and all this week Mix 93-1 and Carter BloodCare will be all over East Texas with the mobile units collecting pints of blood. The blood drive kicks off this morning at 11 a.m. in both Athens and Tyler.
