Two beloved North and East Texas institutions have announced a partnership in the true spirit of giving this holiday season. With a united front, Soulman’s Bar-B-Que and Carter BloodCare are appealing to North Texans to donate blood to help meet the urgent needs of patients in the communities they serve.
“With the cancellation of blood drives after the closure of schools, universities, colleges, businesses and houses of worship, the effect on the blood supply has been profound and sudden. We at Soulman’s have always been encouraged by the generosity of our guests, so it only made sense for us to partner with such an impactful organization that is positively affecting our lives locally,” said Brett Randle, CEO of Soulman’s Bar-B-Que.
President and CEO of Carter BloodCare, Dr. Merlyn Sayers, says, “These are challenging times for the community blood supply. Area hospitals have resumed their full scope of medical and surgical services and they depend on a safe and sufficient blood supply. Soulman’s Bar-B-Que has stepped up and offered to host imperative blood drives throughout November, as well as thank blood donors with special offers and mouthwatering bar-b-que.”
In addition to on-site blood drives throughout the month, Carter BloodCare and Soulman’s Bar-B-Que are doubling the traditional Soulman’s Thanksgiveaway from 18 to 36 Thanksgiving family meals given to deserving North Texans. Each meal in the Fifth Annual Thanksgiveaway includes a bone-in hickory-smoked turkey or spiral ham, cornbread dressing, green beans, mashed potatoes, brown gravy, dinner rolls and cranberry sauce. Nominations will open on November 1st here: www.soulmans.com/thanksgiveaway
“The Coronavirus pandemic has had a compelling impact on all of us in North Texas. Now, more than ever, it is important to the Soulman’s family to support our community by lending a helping hand to people who have suffered hardship in this tough year,” says Brett Randle CEO of Soulman’s Bar-B-Que.
