Summer is in full swing. It is a great time to smell the flowers, soak up the sun, and take a dip in the pool or lake. But Carter BloodCare sees a different kind of dip during summer months: blood collections typically are lower in the summer.

McKinney Police and Fire departments are hosting Battle of the Badges blood drives from June 1 – 3, 2018. Find your most convenient location below, and click the link to schedule your appointment to give. When you’re finished donating blood, cast your ‘vote’ in support of the McKinney Fire or Police Department. Each donor will receive an exclusive Battle of the Badges t-shirt and Rangers BOGO ticket voucher.
