JHG Texas’ 2nd Pandemic Blood Drive

“Texans Helping Texans”

Until December 24th, 2020

Dear Friends of JHG Texas,

We hope this note finds you well and wish you a wonderful Christmas season.

We would like to challenge you – our friends, supporters and members – to donate blood at either an American Red Cross blood drive or Carter BloodCare Center during the days leading up to Christmas once again. As many of your know this is our second Blood Drive for the year and, as we see spikes in COVID infections across  the country again, a truly important act of charity. How could we possibly show our respect, love and care for one another in better ways than to truly help someone who is sick at this time.

Donating blood is simple and easy and we have listed several resources to help you below. Please note that you may need to make your appointment with a drive or center a few days in advance. As before we greatly welcome photos from you to commemorate the occasion, however, absolutely understand if you wish to skip this step. Last, please ask your family, friends and loved ones to join us in our donation as well.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at all times.

Please stay safe and healthy!
