Summer is the best time to make a splash in the pool and in the community! Carter BloodCare typically takes a dip this season too, but in blood donations.

McKinney Police and Fire departments are stepping up and hosting Battle of the Badges blood drives from June 7 – 9. Summer months are hard on the community blood supply. As vacationing and elective surgeries rise, donations decrease while blood use increases. This significantly limits the number of patients we can help. Find your nearest location below, and click the link to schedule your appointment to give. When you’ve finished donating blood, cast your ‘vote’ in support of the McKinney Fire or Police Department and receive an exclusive Battle of the Badge t-shirt.
