The Rotary Club of Breckenridge and Carter BloodCare are hosting a blood drive until 5 p.m. today, Thursday, March 7, at Texas State Technical College, 307 N. Breckenridge Ave.

If you’d like to donate blood, click here to register online. Walk-ins are also welcomed.

Each person who shows up to give blood will receive a compact folding umbrella, a handy item for today’s showers. Plus, those who donate blood with Carter BloodCare March 4-17 will receive the 2024 St. Patrick’s Day T-shirt. The green t-shirt features a lucky four-leaf clover printed under the slogan “Irish You’d Donate.” Umbrellas and shirts are available while supplies last.

Texas-based Carter BloodCare provides lifesaving blood resources to more than 200 hospitals across 57 counties in North, Central and East Texas. Last month, Carter BloodCare hosted a blood drive at Breckenridge High School and collected 29 pints of blood.

The next blood drive in Breckenridge will be the annual Battle of the Badges in June.

For more information, call Les or Sherry Strickland at 254-522-1959.
