Mission 95, We Did It Again!

Posted by on Jun 18, 2018 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Mission 95, We Did It Again!

Mission 95, We Did It Again! On Friday June 15th we challenged the community to donate 95 pints of blood to Carter BloodCare . I’ll tell you we were not disappointed, we passed our goal of 95 with a total of 105 donors, some of those donors were able to donate “double” which brought our count to 113 actual units, meaning we helped put over 300 life saving components of blood on the shelves of our local hospitals.  Carter sees critically low donor numbers during the summer and holidays and this year is no exception. We are so fortunate to have the support of our community, we put the call out and we met our goal.  We would like to thank Brookshires, Sam Richards, Glen Rose Nursing and Rehab, Dairy Max, Somervell County Sheriff Department, Cherokee Rose Nursing & Rehab, Texas Health Cleburne Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Clinic, CareFlite and Sheryl Hulsey with KingFin Entertainment for providing all the music artists for the day, we would also like to thank those artists for donating their time and blood; Brady Hulsey, Shotgun Josephine (Susie & Randal), Steve Schick, Austin Upchurch, Cory Dodd and Jimmy Wright and Ricky Russell.  What a great...
