Carter BloodCare will be set up for donations at the Panola County Senior Expo on Tuesday, Sept. 29 at the Carthage Civic Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Director of Marketing for Briarcliff Skilled Nursing Center Shona Guenther said the bus will take as many donors as it can, but it's better to schedule ahead if you want to secure a spot. To schedule a time, contact her at (903) 631-1038 or Janet Ritter at 903-360-4024. Blood donations can also be made in a high school senior’s name from Carthage or Beckville to go towards their red chord for graduation.

The Panola County Senior Expo is a free event that is open to the public. It is sponsored by Briarcliff, UT Health Carthage and Texas Home Health.
