More than 60 DynCorp International team members in Fort Worth, Texas, volunteered to donate blood to Carter BloodCare as part of their Go, Fight, Give! program. The drive was held Friday, January 25 and more than 52 units were collected that will directly benefit more than 150 north Texas residents.
Go, Fight, Give!
Through Carter Bloodcare’s Go, Fight, Give! campaign, all donors that gave blood during the month of January would receive a Coca-Cola koozie and soda and be entered to win a Home Watch Party Package that includes a brand new HD television and pizzas and sodas for up to 20 guests.
