Roll up your sleeves and get ready to give blood when the mobile Carter Blood Bank comes to Glen Rose on Thursday, April 22.

The mobile unit will be parked in front of Glen Rose Medical Center between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Donors must be 16 years old, which requires a signed consent form from a parent, and older.

Those who want to can join the “Gift of Life” plan and receive financial assistance toward use of a blood product within 12 months of donation for the giver or a family member.

For more information, call Kim McAnally, the medical center's cardiopulmonary director and special events director, at 897-1434.
