Ninety DynCorp International team members in Fort Worth, Texas, signed up to participate in a blood drive, held on June 29, 2012. One pint of blood can save up to three lives, so donations from the drive will benefit more than 215 people!
All donations directly benefit North Texas residents, collected through Carter BloodCare, via two mobile collection sites.
“I’m very proud of the team members who participated in the drive,” said Amy Jones, administrative specialist and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) ambassador at DynCorp International. “This is the most participation we’ve ever had at for a drive and we are honored to work with Carter BloodCare to benefit our community.”
Carter BloodCare was founded in 1998 by the merger of two local blood centers, making Carter BloodCare Texas’ largest blood center. In April 2007, Carter BloodCare also merged with Tyler, Texas-based Stewart Regional Blood Center. Together, they provide more than 330,000 units of lifesaving blood to North Central and East Texas each year.
Carter BloodCare is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that operates on behalf of patients and their loved ones in 54 Texas counties.
