Our members partnered with Westside Baptist Church
and Carter BloodCare to obtain 19 blood donations.
Donations will save 57 lives in a time when donations are
badly needed due to the pandemic impact.

Our blood drive held at Westside Baptist Church this past weekend was a success!   We had 19 donors show up and Carter BloodCare collected 15 units of whole blood and 4 units of red blood cells.
 
Club President Mark Smith says "thanks to everyone who donated, supported, and advertised the blood drive for making it a success!  A special thanks to Ray Bowens for coordinating with his church on allowing us to use their facilities, and for help getting some extra donors!"
 
Susan Holt, Carter BloodCare Consultant writes, On behalf of Carter BloodCare I want to thank you and all of the wonderful donors who participated in Saturday’s blood drive.
 
The reports are in and the following are the results.
We drew 19 pints of blood and there were 4 donors deferred. Participation was excellent!
19 pints X 3 Lives=57 Lives Saved by Lewisville Morning Rotary Blood Drive! BRAVO!
 
We hope everyone had a pleasant donation experience.
 
I cannot tell you how much we appreciate all the support you and your Rotary Club; as well as Westside Baptist Church gave to this event.  As you know we have been struggling to keep our blood supply at an adequate level and this drive came at just the right time.  Many patients have had delayed surgeries due to not having enough blood on the shelves coming out of the winter storms along with the pandemic.  This drive will allow many people to see another tomorrow.
 
Thank you for your kind heart and enthusiasm for this ever so needed community service. 
 
Please let me know if you would like to schedule future blood drives as we are always in need of reliable sponsors.
 
 
We would like to also like to thank our partners at Carter Bloodcare and all that served in the Bus to draw and process the blood.
The staff was masked and maintained social distancing as best they could in the confines of a mobile operation.
They were great!
