Carter BloodCare honors top blood donors

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Five and ten gallon donors along with 100-plus lifetime donators gathered at Ralph and Kacoo's to be recognized Thursday night.

One donor said it feels good to be around people who realize the importance of donating blood to help save lives.

Barbara Taylor has donated five gallons of blood and said, "With the economy getting tighter and tighter, it's harder and harder to give financially, and this is something you can give and it doesn't cost you a penny."

She said all it takes is one donation to save three lives.
