Donate Blood In Memory of Brooke Pierce
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 3 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 336-859-4810. You can also visit redcrossblood.org of call

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
