Central Texas Hero Spotlight: Jack Clark

Image of Central Texas Hero SpotlightJack Clark has been a blood donor for nearly a decade. As a member of the U.S. Army, Jack has been a transient resident in many communities. He says, "Giving blood locally is a great way to make a lasting impact on a community, even if you’re only a part of it for a short time."

Jack donates dual red cells, meaning that two units of red blood cells are collected during a single donation. Red blood cells are the most commonly used blood component, and a dual red donation allows busy blood donors like Jack to save time by donating once every four months. If you’re interested in donating dual red blood cells, call 254.724.2933.
