The Tyler Apartment Association’s July blood drive for the Carter Blood Bank collected 35 units of blood during a high-need time in the community.
Last summer, the Tyler Apartment Association coordinated with the Carter Blood Bank to have the Blood Mobile at three different apartment communities’ locations, one location each week during the month of July.
The association offered a chance to win a $500 VISA gift card to any person who donated the gift of life during this campaign at one of our locations. The association provided 28 member properties with color brochures to advertise the effort to their residents.
The Carter Blood Bank also provided its own incentive of $200 to the property that referred the most people to the blood drive. The drive attracted 46 potential donors and resulted in 35 units of blood collected during a month of great need for the blood bank.
The VISA gift card winner was a resident at a property of one of the association’s members.
