Donate Blood in Memory of Brooke Pierce
Did you know that your one-pint of blood given at a Red Cross Blood Drive could save three lives? Brooke Pierce knew this... she took every opportunity she could to make a donation and encouraged her friends and family to do the same. Sadly, Brooke’s life was cut short when she died in a car accident while on her way to a local blood drive, in 2007 but her family and friends have carried on her legacy by holding a memorial blood drive each year in her honor.

This year the Brooke Pierce Memorial Blood Drive is scheduled for Monday, April 6 from 2 to 6:30 p.m. at Central Methodist Church located at 276 W. First Street, Denton. For more information or to make an appointment call Becky at 859-04810. You can also visit of call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Hydrate with extra water and juice plus iron rich foods one week prior to donation.

This special event is held each year as a way of honoring Brooke and sponsored by Denton Ladies Civitan and the family of Brooke Pierce. Please come out and show your support for her family and friends who believe still believe “Life is a gift best shared!”
