Carter BloodCare’s Outreach Efforts to Dallas Youth

Aschere Energy is an oil and gas exploration firm with a focus on pursuing drilling prospects in proven areas. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Aschere Energy also utilizes its resources to give back to the community by partnering with Carter BloodCare.

Carter BloodCare is the largest blood center in Texas and one of the largest in the nation. The nonprofit works with a vast network of more than 200 healthcare providers throughout north central and east Texas to provide safe blood collection, testing, and distribution services for life-saving treatments. Just one pint of blood saves up to three lives, and every year 4.5 million people receive crucial treatments thanks to the contributions of generous donors.

Because blood cannot be synthesized on a wide scale and the shelf life of donations is only 42 days, the need for blood is ongoing. High school students account for about 22 percent of all donations to Carter BloodCare every year, and to foster a sense of communal involvement and conscience the nonprofit has recently revamped its Gr8 Students website. An outreach program to high school and college students, the Gr8 Students network provides donors with a simple way to develop blood drives while receiving access to fitness tracking, informative pamphlets, and reimbursements through the Great Partners Rewards program.
