WFAA and Carter BloodCare to host blood drive during Monday's RoughRiders game at Dr Pepper Ballpark

We need more than 9,000 donors. North Texans can donate blood Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. in Frisco, or at 21 different Carter BloodCare locations.

Due to a shipment sent to El Paso following a deadly shooting at a Walmart, as well as already low blood supply levels, WFAA and Carter BloodCare are teaming up to restock inventory.

North Texans are encouraged to join WFAA at the Frisco RoughRiders game Monday night, to donate much needed blood. Just stop by Dr Pepper Ballpark between 4 and 7 p.m., located at 7300 Roughriders Trail.

Anyone who donates as part of the blood drive will receive a free ticket to any RoughRIders home game (subject to availability).

Carter BloodCare's blood supply, especially its red blood cell inventory, is still at a critical level.

We need more than 9,000 donors to contribute to meet hospital demands.

Blood cannot be stocked indefinitely and there is no substitute for it -- someone's life or health is depending on community members to volunteer to donate.

If you cannot give at the RoughRiders game on Monday, you can visit one of 21 donor centers across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

Appointments are not required and walk-ins are welcome.

Another way to help is to tell your friends to donate.
