The Texas Rangers and Carter BloodCare will hold a blood drive series at the new Globe Life Field ballpark this week.
As Carter BloodCare faces a critical blood shortage, the Rangers volunteered their newly built ballpark in an effort to support the blood supply.
Anyone who donates will be able to get a glimpse inside Globe Life Field, receive a limited-edition Rangers ball cap and a T-shirt while supplies last. The three-day event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on July 1-3.
Carter BloodCare is also offering COVID-19 antibody testing on all successful blood donations for a limited time.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Due to canceled blood drives on top of the typical summer drop in donations, Carter BloodCare is experiencing what the nonprofit is calling "most prolonged period of a critical blood shortage in recent history."
The donation process is safe, according to the Red Cross, and U.S. health officials said there is “no data or evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted by blood transfusion, and there have been no reported cases of transmissions for any respiratory virus, including this coronavirus, worldwide.”
