Carter BloodCare and Dallas Summer Musicals open the theater for a second run of a three-day blood drive from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, May 26 to Thursday, May 28, 2020, at the Music Hall at Fair Park.
After receiving a generous response to their first, social distanced blood drive in March, Carter BloodCare and Dallas Summer Musicals will host another series of blood drives to address a dwindling community blood supply as hospitals resume surgery schedules and their historical ordering patterns for patients. Blood donated in March had a 42-day shelf life. As Dallas-Fort Worth slowly reopens, Carter BloodCare reminds community members to continue to #bravethemoment and make time for blood donation when eligible. Blood products are essential to securing the healthcare industry as the country continues to strive for better health. Giving blood now will help sustain the increased demand, as well as build the blood supply for summer. The blood program and musical company aim to see 300 people present to give blood over three days.
Here's how you can #bravethemoment:
