The Prosper Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with Carter Blood Care is sponsoring a Blood Drive on Saturday, Sept. 14 in the American Bank parking lot on Preston Road from 10 am. to 2 p.m.

Prosper’s blood drive is listed on Carter Blood Care’s website (www.carterbloodcare.org). To sign up for a preferred time go to their website, click on Quick Links, click City Search and type in Prosper. Change "end date" to 9/14, click "schedule", choose the time and enter your information as either a "returning donor" or "new or guest donor".

"It appears to be a very easy process, but if you have any difficulty in registering please give me a call and I’ll try to help," said chamber director Susan Lane.

The chamber is looking for even more participants than last year in order to reach a new quota set by Carter Blood Care. "Our quota this year is 19 units. Last year our quota was 12 units and we nearly doubled it, and this is what we would like to do again this year. Please consider donating as this is a wonderful way to help patients in need of this lifesaving measure," Lane said.

Online reservations are available, or you can contact the chamber office at 972-508-4200 to secure a specific time. The Title Sponsor for this event is Landmark Mortgage of Prosper, located at 1180 E. Prosper Trail.
